This is a hands-on course for making a mandolin. You will complete an F-style or A-style mandolin from start to finish. This will not be a “kit made” instrument. The process of this class will be entirely done using hand tools. This course will not only give you a better understanding of what goes into making a stringed instrument, but you will leave this course with a beautiful hand-crafted mandolin that you have made. The course is taught by Martin Macica, Maker of Fine Stringed Instruments. He has had 35 years’ experience making instruments like violins, mandolins, cellos and guitars. Feel free to check out the creative process of instrument making on his website at www.macica.com
*Make sure you have a work space at home because homework will be an important part of this class.
