  • PLACES AVAILABLE

On this course, you will have the opportunity to build a delightful, playable ukulele out of different woods and an empty cigar box. It doesn't matter whether you have playing ability, basic woodworking skills or you are a complete novice because you will be guided through the various processes by your tutor who has made over 40 ukuleles. Cigar Box Ukuleles originated in America during the Great Depression of the 1920s and 30s, when many people didn't have the money for an expensive musical instrument. The course will be informative and entertaining and there should be the opportunity for some basic tuition and playing when the instruments are completed. All materials will be provided.
