Peter Warren Down-under

The Bimer Bonsai Club is bringing one of the world’s top-class Bonsai Masters, Peter Warren, to Australia for a program of promotion, demonstrations and development this Friday to Sunday, 31st October-3rd November 2019.

Peter Warren completed a traditional six-year apprenticeship in Japan at Shunka-en Bonsai Museum studying under Kunio Kobayashi at his world-famous nursery in Tokyo, Japan. During which he learnt about not only bonsai techniques but display, suiseki (viewing stones) and antique pots. He is considered a global authority on these subjects. Apprenticeship completed, although originally from Yorkshire he returned to London where he is a full-time bonsai artist travelling far and wide, teaching and working with bonsai collectors and enthusiasts across the globe on a mission to elevate the art of bonsai. He also wrote one of the most popular books in the industry. Peter is part of a new breed of bonsai professional who possess the knowledge and technique of the Japanese bonsai approach, yet also strives to apply these skills to the varied cultures of bonsai as it’s practices in countries around the world.

Peter has work exhibited at the highest levels in Japan, the US and Europe. In November 2013 he created and curated a novel contemporary bonsai exhibition, ‘Natural Flux’, held at the Brick Lane Gallery in London, drawing attention and accolades throughout the art world. Among the world of bonsai professionals, perhaps no other artist has as diverse of a knowledge and skill set as Peter Warren
Alongside working with bonsai, Peter is a published author and respected translator, regularly featuring in magazines around the world and writing a book published by DK. Contents include an introduction to bonsai, species guides and twenty step by step projects as inspiration. It is primarily an entry level book to inspire and educate those taking their first steps in the bonsai world, although there is plenty of information for more advanced enthusiasts in English, German, Spanish, French and other language versions.
