I’ve been adding these each day over on the Club Blogsite and thought I’d bring them up to date here as well.
First 4 parts of the Workshop Videos from Peter Warrens Weekend here. Each video features a tree. Each workshop participant selected a tree for talking through at the start of the workshop. Then depending on what was discussed, it was followed up with some work. Some great info dispensed by Peter.
Ian B, are hard working Club Treasurer was with me on Friday night and I snapped a few photos of his trees while he was here.
His little shohin Kiyo-hime Maple
His Zelkova with the dregs of Autumn colour still clinging on. This tree has come so far from when I first saw it at the club many years ago.
His Scots Pine before and after. Nearly all the branches emerged from the one spot on the trunk and we had to removed a lot to stop this point swelling and create some proper structure on the tree. In some ways a step backwards, but better for the tree in the future.
