SATURDAY 4 & SUNDAY 5, MARCH 2017

The Box Athens and the Greek Luthiers Community (www.luthier.gr) introduce a new set of workshops aiming to introduce us to the secrets of artistic instrument making and guide us through the world of musical instruments as sound producing mechanisms. Wood and materials, manufacturing and design are the basic elements which give to each musical instrument its unique identity, determine its sound and ultimately affect the producing sound it makes as much as the musician’s skill. In this context, these workshops are addressed not only to amateur luthiers but also to musicians willing to further understand their musical instruments and the elements that affect its function and behaviour.

The event took place at The Box Venue (12 Dorilaiou Str., Mavili Sq.) on the weekend of March 4 and 5 and the main focus was on the musical instruments of the lute and guitar family.
