This video shows the story of Yew (Taxus baccata) originally bought from a garden centre as nursery stock.
During a Bonsai4me workshop in February 2020 it was given a very heavy bend to bring the foliage closer to the base before the foliage was laid-out. The video focuses on putting in that bend as well as footage of the workshop itself.
This is a longer video than normal but I had so much informative footage, I felt it was worth stretching the length of the film.
My thanks go to Sean Stolp and Jose Redondo who assisted me during the workshop, and particularly Sean’s commentary as he prepped the tree (he was unaware he was being filmed!).
