The Handmade Rosette
The mosaic rosette has been during centuries the signature of the artisan guitar maker. Aside from the guitar headstock, this decorative element made out of thousands of wood pieces around the soundhole is where the luthier had the opportunity to express his creativity and woodcraft skills at its maximum. There is nothing closer to a true artisan Spanish guitar than a beautiful mosaic, not only a symbol of the hand made instrument, but a piece of art just by itself.
In this three days course you will learn the art of Spanish guitars mosaic rosettes. From the very basic foundations of design and mosaic making to pro tip and advanced techniques on inlaying, jigs, hand painted rosettes and much more! This course is for everyone interested in the rosette making art, no matter if you are a professional luthier or not, with no previous experience required.
