Hello all! This is a short post to tell you about an upcoming Guitar Building Class that will be offered through Maplewood Center for Common Craft
It is an "intensive" class that will be offered September 27th-December 8. The class will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30-9:00.
Here is part of the write-up for the class from the Maplewood website....
"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." The cost for the workshop and materials will be an estimated $1375, including all materials. Price may vary slightly based on the number of participants.
If you are interested in registering for the class, simply go to the Maplewood Center for Common Craft website (highlighted above). I look forward to having you in the class.
Also, some upcoming Events:The 25th Annual Woodworkers Showcase located at the Saratoga Springs City Center on April 2nd and 3rd from 10:00-5:00.
I will be participating both at the NWA booth and Maplewood Center for Common Craft booth with some demonstrations and talks about instrument building classes and various aspects of building instruments with hand tools.
Look forward to seeing you there!
Until next time,
