bonsai Artist, Joint event with Hartford Bonsai Society. 7:00 pm
Ted Matson Ted
began studying bonsai in 1979 in San Francisco, where he learned the basics
under John Boyce. He moved to Los Angeles in 1980, where he became involved in
a number of clubs and began a serious pursuit of the art, taking classes from
leading masters in Southern California, including Ben Suzuki, Shig and Roy Nagatoshi, Melba
Tucker, Warren Hill and John Naka.
Ted was urged to get into teaching by Melba Tucker and he
started offering classes at his home in Pasadena in 1988. Today, in addition to
his own classes, he maintains a busy teaching schedule, traveling to nurseries,
clubs and study groups throughout the state of California and across the U.S.
for workshops and critique.
