Musical Instrument Making: Ukeleles
June 2, 2019 – June 8, 2019
In this workshop students will use salvaged wood to learn a step-by-step process to scratch-build a soprano, tenor or baritone ukulele. You will bend the sides, carve the neck and learn the basics of setting up and playing ukulele. Participants will create at least one playable instrument and even learn a few chords. No woodworking skills are necessary, however advanced woodworkers will discover new applications.
COURSE FEE: $675
