Andrew Cooke, maker of unusual ceramic instruments & strange things, and Paul McMordie, musician and tutor at Ossia music school, have teamed up together for this exciting one-day workshop.

The day will be split into two parts: first find the materials and make a diddleybow of your own design (an electronic pickup will be supplied). The BBQ will be fired up for a burger or sausage bap. The afternoon will be filled with Paul McMordie taking you though the basics of how to play your instrument. This would make a great day for fathers, sons, mothers, daughters, friends and family to be together making a working slide guitar.
