Primo corso KBS- Moyogi e Kengai

Si è concluso ieri il primo corso di due giorni della Kitora’s Bonsai School.

È stato un weekend molto intenso, sono molto soddisfatto, devo ringraziare in primis Monica per avermi sostenuto in questi giorni e nell’organizzazione, Melanie per aver reso possibile un corso in due lingue, italiano e tedesco e il sostegno nella programmazione del corso, Franco per aver portato alla scuola un bel gruppo di ragazzi giovani e pieni d’entusiasmo. Un grazie di cuore a tutti gli studenti, nuovi e vecchi, che si sono impegnati nell’inizio di un percorso didattico molto impegnativo.
