July 2019

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 a ome new openings now.  But because of preparations for my 50 Years of Printmaking exhibition in May, 2020, applications should be sent early.


The School will close at the end of 2019 for long-term students. From 2020 the shortest course will be 10-days to  three months. However, the School up in Karuizawa with teacher Terry McKenna will be available from 2019 for short-  and long-term students.   

The 2019 Calendar has few new openings. Here is the schedule of students for the remaining  year.  If you are interested in a course for 2020, let's begin a discussion. Short-term students are accepted, as mentioned on our top page.
