TAIGA URUSHIBATA

Growing up in the shadow of Mt Fuji Taiga, the son of Nobuichi Urushibata (Japan) , was introduced to bonsai at an early age. A bonsai master in his own right, Nobuichi was renown as a shohin specialist and his garden Taisho-en became famous for his diminutive-sized trees. After studying with his father, Taiga began a formal apprenticeship with Masahiko Kimura and further developed his skill and philosophy towards bonsai. In 2006 Taiga returned to Shizuoka City help his father run Taisho-en. While originally renown for its shohin you will find many larger masterpieces on the benches of Taiga’s garden. Taiga tours the world demonstrating and teaching bonsai, and also offers a short-term study program at Taisho-en. We have some wonderful shohin- sized shimpaku junipers grown by the Ishii’s of Chikugo-en earmarked for Taiga’s workshop.

 JENNIFER PRICE

 It is no surprise that movement is one of the key elements when styling a tree to Jennifer; as a retired professional ballerina, she is an expert in movement. Jennifer began her journey in bonsai as many of us did, with a small tree from a local garden center. She became involved with the Prairie State Bonsai Society (Chicago) and quickly her hobby blossomed into a passion. For the last several years she has been apprentice to Walter Pall, and has traveled to Germany to assist him on his personal collection. Jennifer has taught workshops and traveled across the world to give demonstrations representing the United States. At our 2019 Festival Jennifer will be assisted by Jim Doyle, of Nature’s Way Nursery. Nature’s Way has also provided some nice yamadori spruce for Jennifer’s workshop on Friday.

MARC NOELANDERS

From an early age Marc Noelanders (Belgium) was competing Internationally in karate. These competitions brought him to Japan, where he was introduced to bonsai. His sensei encouraged supplementing his karate studies with bonsai and his passion began. He studied with Masters such as Masahiko Kimura, Saburo Kato, and John Naka. He started the Noelanders trophy in 2000 which is celebrating its 20th show and has grown to become the largest show in Europe. Marc runs ten schools in Europe, the UK, the USA, India and Israel. Marc is currently the president of the European Bonsai Association and travels regularly all over the world to teach, and demonstrate bonsai. We have some nice kifu-size shimpaku junipers for Marc’s workshop.
