It was a great thing for me to have possibility invite Manuel Germade for private workshop at Bonsai Warsaw in January. Manuel is one of the few Europeans who has certificate of Japan Bonsai Association as a professional Bonsai Artist. That is why I wanted very much to learn from him and he is a great teacher. Manuel worked with me on my collection of trees. He is extremely focused on his job but in the same time sharing knowledge on every step. During his stay in Bonsai Warsaw we totally changed very old Shimpaku from Tasho-en Urishibata nursery. Final effect was really amazing. Now the tree compact and waiting for repot in April.
