Learn to make a guitar, ukelele or cittern. An introductory course for beginners. No experience necessary.

Summer Term 2023                                                                                                                                                                                                  


The aim of the course is to foster an understanding of and learn the skills of constructing classical guitars and how to affect the sound by choice of material and construction. We will be using the Spanish model, based on Ramirez- guitars. Over the first 10 weeks we aim to have the guitar carcase glued up.

Further classes to complete the guitar will continue in the Autumn term in evenings
