MAY 18, 2018
Our feature demonstrator for May will be internationally acclaimed bonsai artist, Will Baddeley. Will has been creating trees for over 20 years now. Although heavily influenced by Colin Lewis and Kev Willson, he is pretty much self taught. He is known for his more naturalistic carving and working with native trees as well as more traditional species, Will works across Europe and was invited to the US last year.
He has schools in Italy and Denmark and has worked for many years in the Czech Republic and Belgium. Will has been asked to work in the US, New Zealand and Australia this year. Private collections or group workshops are his main occupation; the latter being a lead in gaining access, confidence and technique with carving pruning and styling bonsai at all levels.
Mr. Baddeley will be demonstrating advanced techniques in deadwood tree carving.
