Satsuo Ando Workshop

I am in the process of documenting a workshop taught by Satsuo Ando at the University of California at Fullerton in the summer of 1979. I am doing what I can to contact the craftsmen and women who attended the 2 week class and will document what I find in the blog over the next few months. The workshop dealt with Japanese techniques such as uchidashi and metal inlay. The making of the tools used was an important part of the class.

I am a beneficiary of this important event through the workshops taught by Eleanor Moty and am indebted to her and all who participated and their willingness to share.
