Guitar Only Workshops at Wenlock Pottery in Shropshire
These workshops are suitable for guitarists of all levels - previously we've had beginners through to quite accomplished players - and our aim is to show how you can make the most of your existing skills as well as adding new tricks and tips to your repertoire. The guitar only workshop gives us a chance to go into detail on the technical side of guitar playing, covering fingerpicking, strumming, improvisational ideas and more. We'll be covering tunes in a variety of styles, touching on folk, blues and the lighter end of rock. The aim is to have a fun but informative day working with each player's capabilities, supporting the beginners and stretching the more able. The cost is £70 per person, which includes all course materials and refreshments (tea and Muffins on arrival, a hot meal at lunchtime and tea and cake in the afternoon.)

HOW GOOD DO I NEED TO BE? - A common question is 'what standard of playing do I need to have?' The music is chosen and arranged so as to be played by both relative beginners and the more advanced. If you can play basic open chords - G, C, E minor etc - and can strum or pick a few simple patterns you'll be fine. If you can do more, we can push you further! You don't need to read music, though a basic understanding of chord diagrams and TAB will help you to get the most from the day.
BOOKING - If you're interested in booking for the workshops please contact us through this website or call Steve on 01746 765268.
VENUE - the dining room at Wenlock Pottery, Shineton Street, Much Wenlock, Shropshire. TF13 6HT - where we can play in comfort around their log-burning stove (in the winter...)
Notes on Parking - Just as a reminder, it's worth mentioning that although you can drop instruments off if you wish, there's no parking at the Pottery. There is however plenty of on street parking in Much Wenlock, and a large town carpark on St Mary's Road, just a few minutes walk away. Also note that the road the Pottery is on is called Sheinton Street on one end and Shineton Street the other! There's a map of Much Wenlock above.
