Classroom Corner – Beginners Class June 2018

An open window into the comings and goings of students and their trees attending our regular weekend and midweek bonsai classes under the ever watchful eyes of John Hanby.
Classroom Corner – Beginners Class June 2018

This was day two of our Beginners Course and a chance for the students to have a go at wiring and styling a piece of raw material……with our help of course. For most of them this was there very first attempt at this type of work.

I discussed the possibilities in each tree with the student…..decisions were made and branches removed. My helpers Derek, Len and Ian then supervised the students as deadwood was created and branches were wired.

After lunch each tree returned to the turntable for the positioning of branches and styling. The students did really well for their first attempt and when you look at the pictures I think the results speak for themselves.

They all thoroughly enjoyed the experience too…..so well done!
