Workshops can accommodate up to 4 people per session.

Choose from one of our pre-designed workshop options or, if you’d like to craft a specific item, contact us to develop a custom workshop. The possibilities are endless!

If you’re interested in a more intensive learning experience to develop your skills and become a professional luthier, the Center offers an immersive apprenticeship program. Through a formal apprenticeship, you will work alongside staff to master the art through product creation, repair, and maintenance. There is no predetermined length of time, but the duration depends upon skill mastery.

Apprenticeship costs vary. Individuals are responsible for monthly studio  fees and material costs. Contact us for more details or to enroll.
