    1. The culinary part of the New School has this course, which I think they're trying to do twice a year. Its by the lady who wrote "Sushi for Dummies":

      Master Class in Sushi NCLS0138

      Limited to 12. For food professionals and serious amateurs who wish to learn authentic techniques for making restaurant-quality sushi (and sashimi). Full hands-on participation is emphasized as students move from making basic types of sushi to creating myriad and miraculous interpretations, traditional and new. Topics include:

      making perfect sushi rice
      selecting and using appropriate kitchen tools and equipment, especially knives
      handling and preparation of the condiments and ingredients used in sushi making
      professional cutting techniques for a wide variety of fish, vegetables, and garnishes
      techniques for making pressed, scattered, rolled, pillowed, and hand-roll sushi
      the importance of presentation.


      1. There's the Natural Gourmet Institute. They don't have a traditional sushi making class (though they have a vegetarian one), they offer a bunch of healthy cooking classes.
