About Team Yataiki (a non-profit group)

Team Yataiki is a volunteer organization of woodworkers with a particular interest in Japanese hand tools, joinery and other allied traditional crafts.
We are committed to bringing Miyano Endo-san to the SF Bay Area for unique hands-on instruction in use of the Japanese charcoal forge for blacksmithing, blade and saw making. Team Yataiki is working within the non-profit educational organization of the Arques School of Traditional Boatbuilding†.

†The Arques School of Traditional Boatbuilding was established in 1996 as a non-profit educational organization and has a widely recognized reputation for its apprenticeship program in wooden boat building. The school is generously providing a space on their property in Sausalito for construction of the facilities and forge which makes these unique classes possible.
