This workshop covers general Juniper spring care including thinning, light wiring, repotting and general maintenance. We will also discuss working with collected material, how to avoid juvenile foliage, and will be appropriate for all Juniper species. The morning begins with a lecture and handouts, followed by hands on work on your own trees. If you do not have a juniper to work on, but would like to take the class, one can be borrowed or purchased (depending on availability).
This workshop is geared to helping the participants improve the health and appearance of their trees and therefore it is of benefit to both beginner and experienced bonsai enthusiasts.
We will also discuss wiring technique in detail. For juniper, we recommend copper wire; this will be discussed at length in the morning class session. Supplies to bring include repotting tools plus shears, pliers, wire cutters, concave cutters, aluminum and copper wire.
You are welcome to bring more than one tree; as much work will be completed as time permits. Those students that have completed previous sessions of study may return to continue to advance their refinement techniques.
The class starts promptly at 9:00 AM so please arrive early. We will begin with an in depth lecture followed by hands on work. The workshop is all day with a break for lunch. You may join us in ordering lunch or feel free to bring your own. The cost of the workshop is $75 – prepayment in full reserves your spot as classroom size is limited. If a reservation is cancelled with less than one week notice, and we are unable to fill the seat, a refund may not be provided.
