On Sunday 14 April 2013 the Goulburn Bonsai Society hosted Japanese Bonsai professional Yusuke Uchida. Uchi as he prefers to be known attended to conduct a workshop for local members to improve their Bonsai skill and knowledge.
Goulburn is renowned internationally for an area that produces very high quality fine micron wool, and has a “big merino sheep” on display at the entrance to the city. What better way to introduce an international visitor to the city than to have his photo taken with the famous sheep?
As I have said in other posts, the Goulburn Bonsai Society is one of the smallest bonsai groups in Australia, but the group still has lots of activities and lots of fun.
The members who were lucky enough to get the opportunity to be participants in the workshop took every opportunity to discuss bonsai processes with our guest.
A varied array of stock was presented to Uchi and he was very forthcoming with ideas and information on all trees presented.
Conifers, evergreen and decidious were all presented for improvement.
All the members of the Goulburn Bonsai Society had a very enjoyable day and we hope Uchi also enjoyed his day in the Australian country side.
