Busy bonsai weekend

Post  Jeremy on Mon Mar 29, 2010 3:23 pm

Hi,
Members of Dragon bonsai had a very intense bonsai weekend.
On Saturday Chris, Bob and I held a workshop for the the Warminster bonsai society.
Many very good trees and everyone in excellent health. We all agreed this time our role was to assist where needed and let the owners of the trees "do their thing" and we made ourselves available to try and answer any questions as needed.
I was too busy to take any pictures, luckly cclive from Warminster sent me a few of Wilf's juniper.
Wilf has a number of junipers and wished to do something a little different with his tree. We all gave our thoughts to Wilf, 2 main options a literati or the much smaller, yet powerful tree. Chris, Bob and I independently suggested the very same reductions and direction.
The tree.


Bob did a sketch for Wilf.


Wilf liked the idea and started to create his new tree.


At the end the tree. It will need wiring. At the next workshop in October, Wilf will have wired and given the juniper it's first styling.

Richard continued to create his first tree. Richard is attending Leeds Uni. and can only getto us a few times a year. He has make huge progress in those workshops and had created a very pleasing larch.
Today he worked on the deadwood, creating shading with indian ink and lime sulphur.

I took a recent acquired box to photograph.




This is a very large tree. I plan to grow it out this year and start to style in the years to come.

Great pix, thanks for posting! The juniper was a big change, and it would be interesting to see it in a couple of years! I like that jin, too. Always good to see bonsai folk enjoying themselves!!
