Please contact the school directly to reserve your preferred block of time. Call 773.489.4830 or email [email protected]


Open workshops offer students the freedom to schedule their preferred hours to work on a project at their own pace.

Students often continue work on acoustic or electric builds, fretwork, finishing, or electronic projects.

This is an hourly, pay as you go, opportunity for students to continue their studies. There are also blocks of time available for purchase at considerable savings. These blocks can be used incrementally for prescheduled sessions already listed on the calendar or for other time slots made by appointment.

Arrangements are made on a case by case basis and generally take place during regular business hours which are noon until seven Tuesday through Friday. Evening hours and weekends that do not appear on the calendar are often available

Students pay a flat rate for access to a Luthiers Station and and the vast collection of shop tools and fixtures. Oversight and instruction is always available to the student during open shop time.

Call 773 489 4840 or email [email protected] with any questions or to check availability and reserve time.
