Continuous Sashiko Learning Opportunity

We have started sharing the culture & technique of the Sashiko we practice in 2017 in Sashiko workshop & class. Ever since, my goal is the same, to share the enjoyment of Sashiko. In order to achieve it, offering the continuous Sashiko Learning Opportunity was one of the must contents I wanted to come up with – like subscription kit.

I prioritized The Online Sashiko Class because the subscription ideas & the continuous Sashiko Learning opportunity requires the prerequisite. I want everyone to understand the core & basic of Sashiko when they take the subscription to continuously offer the free support in Sashiko technique for those who took the Sashiko Stitching Workshop (Core & Basic). I wanted to be fair for those who do not live in the East Coast of the USA. After the online Sashiko Class, I can offer the fair opportunity for everyone.


Please understand any offering in this article have the prerequisite. This is the opportunity for those who took Atsushi’s Sashiko Stitching Workshop (Core & Basic), which is at least 3 hours in either PA, NJ, NY or any other location or Online (either Live-style or On-demand.) Please register with the email address you have used to take the Sashiko Stitching Workshop.


Online Sashiko Class for former students.

Starting March 2019, I offer the Online Sashiko Class with On-Demand videos that the participants can watch anytime anywhere to learn Sashiko, with following the live-session to check what they learned.

The contents I cover in the Online Sashiko Class is very similar to what you have learned in the Sashiko Stitching Workshop (in NYC or in Livestitching). Therefore, I feel uneasy asking for the full price (even after the discount). Since you already have learned the technique and culture, assuming you do not need much support, I decided to offer “A year access to the On-Demand” Videos for a lot small amount of the fee when you agree to give me some feedback.

This is another big resolution for the year of 2019: Sashiko subscription Package.

Atsushi will send a good weekend project amount of Sashiko every month. The follow-up videos will be available for the subscriber. In order to learn the technique and wisdom throughout, we strongly recommend taking in order of we assign.

Here is some example of Subscription Kit that I am thinking of. The pricing will be somewhere $30.00 ~$75.00 per month depends on the materials I would need to send. I will make like a year-round package as well.

[Update for Online Sashiko Learning Opportunity]

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.
