Need Help with Your Projects?


Benzaiten is the patron saint of education and the arts.

One of my greatest joys is watching fellow artists express themselves. And if I can participate in the process, even better! My courses offer a great deal of information in a very clear format, but there are times when we all need a little more personal attention. I recognize this need and have set up several options to help you meet your goals.

Email ExchangesThis is the quickest and most economical approach to getting specific questions answered. The more time you put into carefully articulating your question or issue, the more concisely I can respond. In most cases I can solve your problem without leaving my chair.

   You are only charged for the time I spend formulating and typing my answer to you even if a more-challenging question requires some outside research on my part. I have a vast library of Japanese research materials at my fingertips and enjoy any opportunity to make use of them.

   My fees are $20 per ten-minute block of typing time on my side. For more information, click on the icon below.

Video ConferencingSometimes you may want face-to-face contact to be able to get the information you need. In order to maximize your gain from this option, I like to know ahead of time the points you would like to have covered so that I may gather information and samples to illustrate the details I ’d like to share in helping you. Once we’ve set the topic, we’ll make an on-line appointment for a set amount of time. You’ll be notified of the fee, and we’ll take it from there. No long drive, no getting dressed up! My current rates are $60/half-hour block –you’re not charged for my prep time.

Studio VisitsI have found that on occasion nothing beats just coming out to my studio for a field trip and consultation. I open my library of both books and textiles to you. The fee for this is $600 for a three-hour block of time. Small groups are also welcome, including guilds on field trips and individuals researching specific textile topics.
