Online Sashiko Workshop

Online Sashiko Workshop | Learn wherever you are

After receiving so many emails regarding the Online Sashiko Workshop, I decided to offer the one officially.

 

To be honest, regardless how much I prepared for the online workshop, I am very worried if I can deliver the same experience and satisfaction to the online participants. After offering more than 10 workshops in NYC, I am pretty confident that I understand the participants’ expectation and my capacity to share the beauty of Sashiko. Over the camera, where I cannot reposition your hands and the visual information is limited to the screen, I wasn’t sure if I should even offer it.

 

Thanks to the encouragement from many friends and Sashiko Passionist (some who I haven’t even met), I am now offering the very first Online Sashiko Workshop.

 

Online Sashiko Workshop Schedule

Thanks to the participants for the first online Sashiko Workshop, I learned that the Online Sashiko Workshop can satisfy the participants. Although I still have worries and concerns, I decided to keep offering them.

 

The 2nd Online Sashiko Workshop, Option A

First Session:

  • July 24th (Tuesday) | 8:15 pm to 10:15 pm.

Second Session:

  • June 27th (Friday) | 8:15 pm to 10:15 pm.

 

 

 

To share what Sashiko is to the world

 

As I keep mentioning that Sashiko is not all about stitching, the stitching technique is very important to fully enjoy Sashiko stitching. There are many books available in the market. I even share some of the Sashiko stitching Tutorials on Youtube for free. I still believe that it is critical for me to take a look at the participants stitching so I can provide the instruction appropriately. Yes. “Appropriately” rather than “Correctly”.

 

Your understanding & support to my challenging project, to share what Sashiko is to the world, would be very much appreciated.

Private Sashiko Workshop | Bring Sashiko to your group.

Are you interested in Sashiko Workshop and cannot find the appropriate the instructor/expert? Atsushi can offer you and your group a customized Private Sashiko Workshop.

 

I offer a regular series of Sashiko Workshops In Manhattan, TriBeCa Neighboorhood, a few times a year.

At the same time, depending on the condition, I can arrange a private Sashiko workshop for your quilting guild, patchwork community, and friends groups. Since I offer the Private Sashiko Workshop for you and your group, I can customize the contents of the workshop with communication to your needs.

 

Please contact Atsushi for your needs with expecting the possible fee referring the “Fee Sample” below.

Fee Sample of Private Sashiko Workshop

 

 

Base Fee | Standard Rate

Instructor Fee: $100 per hour

Materials Fee: $60.00 per participant

Single Arrangement Fee: $50

If a private Sashiko Workshop is a regular 3 hours length one with 6 participants, the total fee will be $710 USD/About $120 per person ($300 for 3 hours + $60 for a material fee to each participant + $50 arrangement fee). Single Arrangement Fee will be waived if I can offer more than 2 regular 3-hours length workshop or a 6 hours-length workshop.

The Material fee will be waived or discounted if a participant had purchased our Sashiko Starter Kit and bring it to the workshop.

Please prepare the space for the workshop on your responsibility. Also, I would ask you to cover the necessary expense for traveling and accommodations.

 

Case 1 | 2 of regular Sashiko Workshop

 

For regular Sashiko Stitching Workshop (Core & Basic), I have a workshop size preference.

Workshop Size Preference: 6 Ideal, 4 minimum, 8 Maximum.

Workshop Duration: 3.5 hours | $350.00

Workshops in a day: Up to 2 times | The 3rd workshop may be available at night.

 

This is the standard case for me to offer the best Sashiko Workshop for up to 24 people in a day.

 

Case 2 | 1 Long Sashiko Workshop

Workshop Size Preference: 12 Ideal, 7 minimum, 16 Maximum.

Workshop Duration: 6~7 hours

Workshops in a day: Up to 1 times | The 2nd workshop may be available at night.

If a group size is more than 16 and would like to take the workshop all together, 6 hours extended workshop may be the better idea. The contents are the same. I will spend more time focusing on each student throughout the 6 hours.

If you are a single member or a small group.

 

I understand there are many people who are interested in taking my Sashiko workshops, but not in a group of quilting and patchworking to have me at your place. There are a few things you can do to take my Sashiko workshop with reasonable price.

1. Make a plan to visit where Atsushi lives | Lewisburg, PA 17837

I live in the central part of Pensylvania. If you can make a visit to the city of Lewisburg, I can arrange the private Sashiko workshop for you with the price of $135 ~ $250 per person including the materials, depending on your request. The extra fee may apply for the place to offer the workshop. I do not mind offering the Sashiko workshop in your hotel room if you plan to stay overnight. I am open to any suggestion & possibility.

2. Join a local needlework group and propose the idea of having me there.

I can offer the Sashiko Stitching Workshop (Core and Basic) regularly in TriBeCa, hugely thanks to my supporters. Please consider to join the local needlework, patchwork, quilting or hand-crafting group and guild and propose them to have me in your city. If your group can be a good supporter of my activity, then I can offer the multiple Sashiko Workshops in your city like I do in Tribeca, NYC.

3. Take the Online Workshop

With many requests from all over the world, I am developing the Online-Sashiko Workshop.

It is very challenging since my workshop style includes actual re-positioning your hands by holding yours. I am a bit uneasy if I can deliver the same quality workshop to the participants over the web. I will update the information once it is ready to offer.

 

Please contact me when you are ready to have me

Private Sashiko Workshop Pin CUSHION

 

I sincerely appreciate the increase of interest in Sashiko Stitching and my Sashiko Workshop.

I used to say, “please feel free to contact me with any small questions!” Although I feel the same, the increase of contacts which ended up with not receiving the reply made me write this. Please contact me when you are ready to have me.

 

It is perfectly fine if the workshop doesn’t work out because of a scheduling conflict. I understand that.

However, not getting a reply after scheduling myself causes troubles and it may negatively affect the possibility of keep offering the workshop. I usually make a reply within a day. Please try to be on the track if you decided to contact me.

 

I have had 3 cases without ANY replies within a week… I am sorry for whining. 

 

 

 

Thank you for your understanding & I am looking forward to offering the “100% satisfaction received” Sashiko Workshop.
