Hello Everyone,

I am pleased to announce that the theme, dates, and presenters for the
second Workshop in Taku have been decided upon.

The workshop is scheduled for spring of 2012, May 12 - 18. The theme:
'The Simple Teabowl' will encompass the making and use of teabowls for
Japanese tea ceremony, the teabowl's role in the context (past and
