Instrument Building with Professional Crafts Alum Bill Weinert!

Posted December 14, 2016

Haywood Community College is proud to present classes with Professional Crafts alum and local Luthier, Bill Weinert.  This series of classes is a skill building series comprising Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Lutherie.  Through these classes, Weinert will share his six years of knowledge and teach students the history and construction of stringed instruments while remaining aware of small studio restrictions and budgets. Each student will leave these six-week courses with at least one hand crafted instrument of their own design, and the ability to continue this craft from the smallest of home workshops.

The intro class is open to all level of woodworkers and will cover instrument history, construction, fine-tuning and even how to play the instrument. This course is the first of three building-block courses taking the student through the beginning, intermediate and advanced levels of instrument building.
