Roy Huthison at the Dragons den

Post  chris on Fri Oct 02, 2015 3:00 pm

It was a great pleasure to have Roy with us a couple of weeks ago to run a workshop day.
I have for many years admired Roy's way with trees, his eye and feel for a tree is second to none. With Roy and earlier this year Peter Evans I feel we have been lucky enough to have had 2 of the finest artist the West country has to offer.
The way we run this type of workshop is just to let the artist mingle and give advice and guidence. I feel that tying them down to a hard and fast topic for the day is not the way to get the best from them.

After dinner Roy was asked to style a Squmata Merrii and  his thinking as he moved through the process. First he decided the style he wanted and cut off all the branches that were not being used, this really showed his confidence  and experience he also cut a lot of the downward week growth to clean up the lines, then it was over to me to wire the tree and then back to Roy for a magical styling
