Japanese Woodblock workshops in 2017: February in Florence

I'm starting to organize some short and long workshops in moku hanga/Japanese woodblock for 2017.
 My first 2017 introductory class--a 2-day crash course in the basics of watercolor woodblock prints will be held in the San Giovanni School of Art, the cooperative studio I share with 3 other artists on other side of the Arno from the city center.
One of the studios has recently vacated so I have room to host a group with space for at least 6 participants plus room to demonstrate carving and printing.

My February class is now open:
Feb 18 and 19, 10a-6p, limited to 6 students (4 places are still open as of today)
Via San Giovanni 23, Firenze--near Porta San Frediano/Viale Ariosto--easy access to the train station and adjacent (but only intermittently vacant) parking.
€180 for the class includes inscription, materials (2 blocks, paper and pigments) the use of our studio's sharp, student-grade and professional level tools, chisels, and barens for printing.
In addition, the tools used during the workshop: a set of 5 basic knives and gouges, a student baren, and a Japanese stencil brush can be purchased after the class at cost.
Students will be able to print a small edition of a 2-4 color print during this 2-day intensive class.

Ravenna (Fall 2017)
Padova (not yet confirmed)
Also I'm hoping to repeat my 2 or 3-day class in Ravenna in October and perhaps teach in a new venue in Padova in late Spring or early Summer. 
Plus I'm getting increasing interest for small sessions (1-2 people)  interested in single day or half-day sessions in the basics---image management and carving, basic and advanced printing, managing registration with multiple blocks, printing an edition with good paper and assistance so I hope to set up a series of day classes with a structured but flexible set of units.
