Recorder making in progress

Cambridge Woodwind Makers

Preservation through participation.

Seasons Greetings to all Cambridge Woodwind Makers followers and supporters.

We have had a busy and fun year enjoying many participants enthusiasm and delight as they learn new skills and produce instruments from scratch. For 2014 we are adding further courses and have a wonderfully full program to share with you. This includes numerous 'Watch @ Work' events which are opportunities for everyone and anyone to come and watch workshops in progress.

We also encourage you to look at The ACE Foundation's course program for 2014 as there are many fantastic, and complimentary courses running at their newly established centre, also at Stapleford Granary. Some of these run in tandem with Cambridge Woodwind Maker courses. View the full details on their website: www.staplefordgranary.org.uk.

See below for a list of Cambridge Woodwind makers courses and dates. We hope you can join us!
