March, 2016 Guest Demonstrator and Bonsai Artist: Tony Bebb

For the group's March meeting, we were treated to some great bonsai education and talent through the workshop and demonstration of Queensland's own bonsai artist, Tony Bebb. A quick search on our past events section will reveal Tony's outstanding work in previous years and 2016 was no exception! We started off the day with Tony workshoping  with nine members and their trees, with a score of observers. Then after lunch, Tony worked his magic on a lovely informal Tiger Bark Fig.

 

We thank Tony for another great event and all those who attended left with further knowledge and enthusiasm for our passion. He is so easy to listen to and he provides something for everyone, from the very beginner through to more experienced members. Our quote for the day was, regarding the application of 'physiotherapy' to a branch....." apply maximum force with minimum velocity". Who'd have thought a physics lesson would have come out of a bonsai demonstration?!?

Focus on the demo tree

This Chinese Elm group planting was one of the first trees developed by a long standing member in 1989. It was originally formed during a Toowoomba workshop with Tony's father, Lindsay Bebb. It was wonderful to see the tree continue to be developed by both father and son!
