Build & Play Workshop

Our next London workshop will take place on  Saturday 29 January 2022

If it's cancelled because of Covid you will be offered a full refund or transfer to a later workshop. You can also choose to receive a kit to build the guitar at home or we can supply a fully finished guitar.

Hope you can join us.

No upcoming events at the moment

If you have a guitar club, music society, Arts Centre then we can run a workshop just for you. Get in touch and we can arrange something to suit you

Our workshops are a fun way to build your own Cigar Box Guitar.


You need no woodworking skills - if you can draw and cut in a straight (ish) line then you can build your guitar. We are there to help you over the tricky bits and and rescue you from any mistakes that you may make.


We supply all the parts (genuine Havana cigar box, hardwood guitar neck, NewTone  guitar strings - everything you need) and all the tools - we even supply lunch (most of our workshops run in pubs) and good company comes as standard.

Normally we have smallish groups of 10 -12 people which gives us plenty of opportunity for individual support.

At the end of the day we string your new instruments, tune them up and spend some time enjoying an introduction on how to play slide cigar box guitar. You'll soon be playing "Foot Stompin" music.
