When it comes to teaching, I may have a very high standard of “responsibility”. As I mentioned in the previous post, “Teaching” has become Entertainment – and what my students expect of me may not be as high as I imagine. However, as my own standard, I make myself to offer everything I have in the workshop. Therefore, I get nervous no matter how many times I teach. Therefore, I can offer a few workshops throughout the year. At the end of 3 days, I will have nothing left.

Yes, I have done this type of workshop so many times by now. However, for those who participate in the workshop, it is their first time to experience my teaching. I do everything so that they do not need to retake it. My goal (dream) is to pass down the Sashiko we practice. For that, I have only one shot to achieve it. For those who learn Sashiko from me, I fully represent the Sashiko I received from so many Sashiko Artisans around me. The learner receives the story from me, the story I received from someone – and we all together make it as “History”, and then it becomes culture, and also “Tradition”. Teaching comes with Responsibility to be part of the “Story” – and I do not take it lightly at all. I am very much looking forward to sharing the Sashiko we practiced this weekend.
