Harp Stringing Workshop by Carol Holsinger
Once you have decided that you need new strings on your harp, there is always the dilemma of getting around to it. Join us to accomplish together what can often be a lonely task. Gryphon has Dusty Strings and Triplett strings if you need them (best to get them in advance to be sure you have them). Bring your strings, your harp, and your tuning key, and we will enjoy each other's company while we work. You will know your harp intimately when you are done. OK to drop in to learn how to tie knots or to see the work in progress. Gryphon is donating the space so there is no charge for this workshop. Please do register in advance with Gryphon so that there is plenty of space for you.
