Gary Wood Seminar
My apprentice Bobby Curttright and I were looking forward to this all month! Long time friend Gary Wood came west to share his tree wizardry with us in a seminar last weekend. I always thought his last name was a karmic promise…
Gary’s knowledge of trees, their inner workings, and how they respond to stimuli including sharp bonsai implements is nothing short of encyclopedic. And he’s an inventive, nearly prophetic thinker. For one, his own observations had him almost ten years ahead of the research on the role of auxins and sugars in determining plant growth.
A dozen lucky folks from the Northwest converged on my studio for Gary’s fact-filled, humorous day.
I’ve been to two of his seminars at Cass Bonsai outside St; Louis and they are two of the best and informative discussions I’ve been at and I heartily agree with Michael’s comments. Gary is a fastening and enlightening teacher. I’d sit with him anytime.
Gary’s ability to share years of knowledge in his friendly easy going manner is worth his weight in gold. Looking forward to his next visit to Mike’s place for another session with Professor Wood.
like to chat with Gary sometime…Sound like a real wizard…
