1th Workshop November 1996

On the 30th Novembember and 1st December 1996 the first of a series of bonsai-workshops with Nobuyuki Kajiwara took place in Killwangen. A small group of bonsai-friends and very good "rawmaterial" was the base - Nobuyuki Kajiwara brought in his knowledge and his experience
First styling and refinement work on already styled conifers was the topic. 12 hours intensive work - a lot of new - happy faces thank to the results after the first workshop
1. Workshop November 1996

2. Workshop April 1997

In april ‘97 we have met for the second time and the topic was repotting of deciduous trees and conifers. A topic that seemed to be quite familiar to us. Nobuyuki Kajiwara showed with two examples what has to be considered, what are the wrong ideas and can have fatal results. And finally the topic of watering: this is as well a rather simple procedure - most people think. But what seems to be so easy turns out to be the most difficult part. For good reasons the Japanese masters very often water the customers’ trees themselves - it is not a job for the apprentice!
