KOITOYA Japanese Woodworking Course

I have more than 10 years of teaching experience in Japan, and it is still my joy to have teaching opportunity. My teaching experience includes 10 years of full time lecturer in Gifu Academy of Forest, Science and Culture, and part time lecturer at the ANU since 2012. 
I am running a range of courses in the evenings and weekends.  The classes aim to give individual and focused support for students to gain skills and build knowledge in woodworking general. Experienced makers, as well as beginners are welcome.
