Sunday’s Workshop

Sunday’s Willowbog Workshop with Peter started with the usual ‘sit down and discuss ‘ of all the main trees to be worked on during the day. We had six participants on the day plus our junior member Jamie, was was there to observe and assist as needed. He worked pretty hard on the day as it turned out and there was me thinking all teenagers were lazy!

The initial chat about the trees is a great way for everyone to learn a little more, even if it’s not their tree. It is a popular segment for members.

As the day progressed we saw a lot of repotting taking place. Two maples a Chamaecyparis and an Elm featured strongly. Towards the end of the day the carving tools came out and the sawdust was flying.
