Let’s Build a Guitar!

The new Maplewood Center for Common Craft Fall Guitar Course is officially posted and ready for student registration.

    • Drawing from over 30 years of fine instrument making, Martin Macica will share his knowledge of the principles and practice of guitar making, leading participants through the process of making their own guitar using hand tools.   This intensive course will cover every aspect of guitar making, including the important hand-cut dovetail neck joint.   Participants will leave with a working knowledge of guitar making, and a handcrafted instrument ready for a lifetime of making music.Please use the registration button below if you are interested in taking this course, which will take place on the following evenings:
