Transportation and Lodging
            The sponsoring group is responsible for the cost of all transportation, lodging and meals during the teaching engagement, including ground or round-trip airfare to the teaching location. Arrangements will be made by the guild/conference to meet Wen at airport. If I drive to your location, the cost is $.55 per mile or current IRS mileage allowance plus tolls.  
            I require three meals per day, including dinner the night before I teach and breakfast the day of departure. I prefer housing in a clean, comfortable hotel.  I prefer not to stay in private home. If I have to stay in a private home, I would need a separate bedroom and bathroom and privacy to regenerate after teaching. I have discovered as I devote myself fully to the workshop or lecture, I need to have a definitive schedule; Dinner over by 7:30, and the rest of the evening on my own. I schedule this way to be at my best for your organization.

Cancellation Policy Cancellation by the host or me must be made no less than 30 days prior to the event. If notification by host is less than 30 days, ½ fees, and any non-refundable expenses incurred by me must be paid to me or the host will need to reschedule the event at the convenience of all parties. If, by some unforeseen circumstances, I cannot meet the obligations, and it is within the 30-day period, I will reschedule the event at the convenience of all parties.
The Supply List will inform as to what general supplies for each workshop are required and if there is supplemental equipment necessary. Some workshops require specialized kits supplied by me.
I expect that the host/group will take all means in their power to obtain both an appropriate site for the events and enroll students for the workshops.

Thanks in advance for joining with me in a workshop!
Taking a workshop is like opening a door...
you walk through and where you go from there largely depends on where you take the process...
Make it personal, we all have our own voice and this affects our art making.
