On the weekend, I helped out at this workshop, and was really impressed by the material and passion the guys in Dublin have. A big thank you to Leinster Club and Harry for inviting me along, and for your hospitality & a great weekend.
The club has only existed for 4 years, yet 10 guys with great material and loads of enthusiasm turned up & did some fantastic work, and with Harry took their trees forward to the next stage.
A huge Berberis with some beautiful natural deadwood
The best Hawthorne raft material I've ever seen. The owner wanted to move it from a training pot to this slab pot, and to solve the issue that some trunks hide others. After much discussion and different ideas from everyone, it was re-potted with the centre raised, and the front opened up. This will make for an incredible tree.
A huge Hornbeam that had an 'Owls's face' that just wouldn't stop staring at the owner, Owen.
Some more great trees ..
I also got to meet a talented bonsai and accent potter that I have been aware of for a while thanks to Ian at Bonsaieeijit.com.
This is the work of Maciej of Magic Cermamics. He also loves his trees, and is a really nice guy!
Thanks again to Leinster Bonsai Club!
