De-Candling Your Black Pine
Dates: Saturday July 11, 2020 OR Thursday July 16
Time: 9:00 – 12:00
Instructor: Adair Martin Fee: $100.00
Due to Covid, class will be limited to 4 students. We will work in fresh outdoor air and distancing but please bring face masks.
Japanese Black Pine: You will learn the “de-candling” techniques now used in Japan to create the highest quality bonsai and develop shorter needles. The goal is to increase ramification (more branches), and to refine and balance the growth of the tree. This is also the time to work on white pines to remove excess branching to keep tree more compact.
Wiring is done after de-candling. If time permits, you will learn basic wiring techniques and how to develop branch structure.
