How do pieces of trees create a box that can stir emotion? Why does the grain of a soundboard always go in a certain direction? Why do guitar makers use so many politically incorrect materials? Why is a soundhole a misnomer?

In this entertaining lecture/slideshow/concert, award-winning guitar maker, inlay artist, and performer William “Grit” Laskin will answer these questions and more. A not-to-miss event for those who want to learn about the artistry of guitar making, and listen to a performance by one of their favourite folk singers and songwriters.

Fee includes gallery admission and parking. Galleries 8 and 9 will be closed to the public before and during the performance.
