The workshop harp:
The harps we will be making are constructed from pine. The design will be for a 26 strings Celtic/Paraguayan style harp. Due to safety restrictions, we will supply parts of the harp already cut to design in order to proceed to assembly, fitting, finishing, stringing without having to use “dangerous” machinery.
