With my two bonsai buddies Johnny Eslykke and Torben Pedersen I have formed a small work group with the purpose of teaching and developing the art of bonsai in our country. We have deliberately avoided a club or organization in order to keep a clean and crisp focus on bonsai. Lately we formed a closed masterclass group with invited people, to secure a small group of dedicated people who will work well together.
Our first meeting was set up in the easter holidays, and with the sun shining from a clear sky and warm weather (it has been the warmest April month in 135 years), the conditions were perfect. We meet private, and the gathering took place at Johnny Eslykkes place in his beautiful Japanese inspired garden.
We worked on both larger and small pieces, and had a great time in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. next time will be in august at my place, and maybe we put up a lecture about displaying or another theme. Most important, it is to work with a dedicated group of friendly people.
