Sunday’s Workshop Review

The workshop started at 10am with 7 members taking part and a few extra hands available if required. Some of the participants had also attended the School on Saturday and were keen to get some repotting done.

The day started off with Peter talking through the trees that were going to be the focus of the workshop.

This is an important part of the workshop. Everyone gets to learn from everyone¬†else’s¬†bonsai.

Next, Peter started to get work started on the trees. In most cases this was repotting but in a few cases this was pruning and styling.

Pure concentration

Here’s a few of the before and after photos, most are after repotting.
