There are some important changes coming to the School. First, there will be a 10,000 yen deposit sent to the office when the student has seriously indicated he/she wants to attend the school. (We use PayPal; This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

Secondly, class fees are paid on the first day of the week, usually Monday, for the whole 4-day class period.

Thirdly, a tour of a sumi making company over in Nara City will be added to the outings schedule. But the company has no tours in the hot months, usually April to the end of September. We will try to visit other mokuhanga related places instead.

Ask questions about the above, or anything else.           

2019 has few openings because of preparations for my 50 Years of Printmaking exhibition in 2020 or 2021.


The School will close at the end of 2019 for short-term students. From 2020 the shortest course will be three months, tho longer courses for individuals aiming to become teachers will be held. However, the School up in Karuizawa with teacher Terry McKenna will be opened in spring of 2019 for short-  and long-term students.
