John recently realised his life long ambition to study bonsai under a Japanese master. During a sabbatical from his job John enjoyed a three month study period at Nobuichi Urashibata Taisho en Nursery in Shizuoka, Japan.
Overwhelmed by the enormous support he received from the UK bonsai community he is know paying the price.........by visiting and talking at those groups that 'stumped up' and helped in realising the ambition!!
I'm sure it will be an enjoyable, enlightening talk- one not to be missed.
You can see more of John's trees via the link below to a site that highlights the work of a group of enthusiasts that he helped set up in Yorkshire.
