François Jeker gives lectures and demonstrations all over the world: in Europe, the USA and South America, in South Africa, and in the Caribic.
In 2008 he founded a bonsai school in Monreal (Canada). He has written and also illustrated several books about the aesthetics of bonsai and the handling of dead wood. These books are translated into several languages, and they are now considered standard works. He also worked for several national and international journals.
With his trees he won numerous awards at European exhibitions.
Since 2005 he is organizing courses for participants from all Europe at his home in Alsace (France) always trying to design mostly European yamadori plants using very gentle techniques.
In his opinion bonsai is not only an art, but also a philosophy and a rule of life based on having respect for the nature.http://www.jeker-bonsai.fr/
