24-30th June, we will be at Glastonbury, so reduced staffing means deliveries may be little slower than normal. Thanks for your understanding

Workshop and Gig Tickets

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.
