Description

This evening course taught by Luthier Brian Leach (Cork Guitars) will teach the design and making of a small “box harp” including practical music theory.

The pieces will be cut out using hand tools and glued/screwed together. The instrument will be setup and tuned to play a simple musical scales or chords.

The shape of the box harp that you design, and the position of the sound hole, will create a unique instrument with its own timbre. It can have different gauge strings to allow it to be tuned to your specifications (Perhaps to accompany your voice in an appropriate key).

All skill levels (18+) are welcome.

Suitable for beginners, this workshop is designed to provide you with a strong foundation instrument making.
