Our luthiery (guitar building) course is run at our Dicker Mill workshop in Hertford by Nick Blishen, Course Leader for Musical Instruments at the London Metropolitan University and author of 'Acoustic Guitar Making: the Steel String Guitar'.

The course is currently taught on Saturday and Sunday mornings in 3 hour sessions, the ultimate aim being to build an acoustic guitar from 'scratch' using hand tools. All skill levels are welcome, no experience is necessary.

Inlay & Finishing Course
Complimenting this, we are also running an Inlay and Finishing course which is run by David Oakes - a Master Finisher and Restorer. Course content concentrates on mother of pearl and wood inlay techniques and shellac french polishing and applying nitrocellulose lacquer.

If you would like more information or a place on the course, please call us on 01992 677992 or fill in our Sign Up form.
