Dear friends and supporters,

Hopefully you have all seen our new website and some of the courses we have scheduled for 2019. We have had a super response and many bookings so we do advise booking early to confirm your places. Where we can we will add new dates but this is not always possible.

That said, we have changed the date for Cornetto Making; added new dates for Classical Clarinet Making, Recorder Repair & Care, Recorder Making with both Tim and Jacqueline; added new courses: Introduction to Key Making and One-Keyed Folk Flute Making; and moved a couple of Repair & Care dates to suit participants. So do re-look if you were considering any of these.

In addition, Modern Oboe Reed Making and Adjustment was so popular that we added a new day so you can now book for Saturday 13th April for Modern Oboe Reeds. We also added Baroque & Modern Oboe Reed Making in October.

Anyone who has attended one of our Repair & Care courses may especially benefit from attending our Refresher Repair & Care course on Saturday June the 8th. We only have one date for this each year.

We will also be adding a hands-on key making course to our Professional Development programme. Metal Flute Headjoint and Wooden Flute Headjoint courses are also on the cards.

We were delighted to have Tim Cranmore back in our workshop with the inspirational Lara Domeneghetti making a recorder. Lara is completing post graduate study in Ornamental Woodcarving and Gilding at City & Guilds London Art School. Lara was able to get funding to attend our course as woodwind instrument making is an endangered craft on the Heritage Crafts Associations endangered crafts red list.

We continue to appreciate our followers sharing news of our work, you never know who might be interested!

With best wishes,
Daniel & Rosemary
