Join us for a day of bonsai with Marco Invernizzi, an internationally renowned bonsai artist from Italy. This two-part lecture and demonstration will cover the initial styling and development of native collected material, as well as the refinement of a “finished” Japanese imported bonsai with wiring, pruning, and styling techniques.
Born and raised in Milan, Italy, Invernizzi first became interested in bonsai at age 15 after watching The Karate Kid Part III. Invernizzi has studied with Salvatore Liporace in Milan and Masahiko Kimura in Inamachi, Japan; has won a number of prestigious awards; and has been published in more than 15 different magazines worldwide, including an October 2008 Newsweek Japan cover photo and feature. Invernizzi has taught bonsai on five continents and tends some of the best bonsai collections in Europe and the United States. Invernizzi is also the designer and creator of the bonsai tool ICHIBAN, handmade by Masakuni, as well as his Green T bonsai turntable.
