Build & Play Workshop
Our next London workshops will take place on
5 September and 7 November 2020
In order to ensure appropriate social distancing all our workshops are now limited to 6 people
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.
