Builder Workshops

Earl had initially offered a class on How to Build a Beginner Swedish Traditional Nyckelharpa on the weekend of September 11-13, 2015 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The class has been canceled due to inadequate registrations.

Earl is willing to teach this class if there is enough interest. We need 6 class participants to justify the time and effort to do the workshop. If you are interested in this, please e-mail Earl at Earl(at) When we have 6 interested people, Earl will coordinate with them to set a date and then announce it for open registration.

The class size is limited to 15.

Unless there is a sponsoring organization that would like to host this builders class, it will be done in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. If any organization would like to consider hosting for this, please contact Earl.

Earl is willing to consider a follow-up class for participants of the first weekend to review and discuss the instructions and other issues that have come up, as well as other items related to building nyckelharpas.

The seminar would start with a Friday evening session. There would be sessions on Saturday morning and afternoon and Sunday morning.
