Workshop and Gig Tickets

CORONA VIRUS - Please note that all our workshops and ticketed  events have all been postponed. As soon as we are in a position to re-schedule them we will be touch. 

If you have a ticket for Boxstock or any of our workshops, your ticket will be valid for the rescheduled event, alternatively you may request a refund.

Please bear with us in these difficult times - we will do our best to get these events up and running again.

 

Make your own 3 string guitar and learn how play in a day. With over 2000 guitars made in my "Make and Play" workshops, these events are always popular and always fun, so early booking is advised.

Learn to play cigar box guitar. There are a variety of courses - 1/2 day beginners and intermediate classes, and also learn to play courses with myself and the legendary Hollowbelly.
