Build your own classical or flamenco guitar with guitarmaker Sergio Valverde Castillo.
Sergio Valverde Castillo runs this 4 weeks course with a maximum of two students to guarantee full personal attention resulting in a guitar you can be proud of.
He will personally teach you to build your guitar in a traditional workshop located in La Alpujarra (Granada).
During the course the student works and learns under the permanent supervision of the teacher. All parts of the guitar are handmade, including the rosette and the bridge.
The type of construction is based on the "Torres" concept, according to the traditional techniques.
You work for 4 weeks from Monday to Friday, 8 hours a day (If necessary we will also work on Saturday, depending on the speed at wich the student advances)
The course includes the use of tools, woods, materials and hard case. However they do not include accommodation (Although we can help you book accomodation)
During the course we also work the French polish technique with shellac, we give a first coat to the guitar, but the complete process is not done becouse there is no time.
