Advanced Wiring with Phil Hobkirk (Saturday, October 29, 2022)
Late fall is a great time to wire and style Conifers and Deciduous Bonsai.
Bring your trees that are healthy and ready for design.
We will make a styling plan and apply the wire.
Aluminum wire will be available as well as supervision and guidance from Phil Hobkirk. Students are expected to bring their own tree(s).
This is an advanced level workshop.
Participants must have bonsai experience and you should bring your own tree(s) that are in need of major bending, drastic changes or detail work. No task is too small or big for this workshop.
Learn how to make major changes to existing bonsai plants, including bending, trimming and detail work.
