From Hudson to Holland

I've been studying Dutch architecture in the Hudson Valley of NY for nearly 15 years.  I'm currently finishing a Masters Degree in Preservation Studies at Boston University, and in the last year I have started my own preservation company, New Netherland Timber Framing and Preservation.  A chance has presented itself to me to go to the Netherlands where I can study the roots of Dutch Architecture in America, the only hitch is with starting a new company and having been a Grad Student for two years, I have no savings. I have a place to stay while I'm over there, I just need to be able to get there and back, and be able to eat and travel while I'm there, hence my need for money.

So it was suggested I try this out, so nothing ventured nothing gained as they say.   I am offering to teach one day workshops in exchange for every $1000 that is raised here.  So if a group of people go in together and manage $2000, well that's a two day workshop.  Mind you, I need to be able to drive to where you are, (unless you're willing to fly me there, but let's not overreach.)     So, that's it, any help would just be awesome.

Thanks,
Ian
