Instrument Building Workshop with Wayne Henderson

Sunday, October 6, 3:30 – 5:00 PM
Unitarian Universalist Church of Silver Spring
$15 (both workshops $35)

Wayne will share stories from his 38-year career as a luthier and discuss the process of building guitars, mandolins, and an occasional fiddle, banjo, or Dobro. He will bring along completed instruments as well as instruments he is currently working on. Wayne’s knowledge of acoustic instrument construction and repair is unsurpassed, and this is a rare chance to listen to a master luthier discuss his craft. Come see why the waiting list for a Henderson instrument is four years or more. This workshop is essential for anyone with a passion for acoustic instruments.
