Blackwood Guitar Making School

I want to introduce you to Canada’s newest luthier school! With a brand new shop and on site accommodations this is one of the best options you'll find in Canada for getting a taste of what it takes to build your own guitar.  - Josh


From Ted
Welcome to Blackwood Guitar Making School. We are located just 20 minutes Northwest of Brockville. Our goal is to teach every student how to make a fine instrument during a 5-week acoustic guitar making program.

We take up to 5 students per program, keeping the 1:1 time with the instructor to a maximum. This ensures your success while enhancing your enjoyment of the program. All materials are supplied, as are hand tools and required machinery. Safety is a priority, so you will be instructed in the safe use of all machines. I will assist you with machine processes should you be unsure. You are welcome to bring your own hand tools.

We start with literally a pile of raw wood and work our way through the process of building a fine acoustic steel-string guitar. Each process will be demonstrated by the instructor, and then the students will perform the same operations on their guitar with ongoing guidance. I will be building my own guitar during the course, so every process will be clearly demonstrated.
