Ok   i'll try    (:)

My English is not so good.
My French is much worse

Or does not exist    ;)

Emmanuel's English is super and your's is more than good enough to ask him the question.

I have been assisting Emmanuel on his courses for the last 3 years. The question often comes up about the skills required and the tools required for the courses. No previous craft skills are required, only the willingness to 'have a go'. There is plenty of help to ensure that everyone will be successful in making a fine instrument. From now on all tools will be provided including screwdrivers, craft knives, rulers etc. This means that it is not necessary to take sharp objects on flights or Eurostar etc. Those course members who wish to bring there own hand tools are very welcome to do so of course. I hope this helps.

The 2 Swedes were building melodeons in 2016 in Embraud. One Swede (= me) built his D/G this summer in Embraud.  It was a great experience. Different from building the one row in 2008 (Stowmarket). Now we all worked, slept, ate and drank (no beer) at the same place. 12 happy builders from Sweden, Bristol, Belgium, Holland, US and France. If you have some woodwork experience you will find the pace during the 9 days relaxing and Emmanuel and the assistance/tuner are very helpful if you run into some difficulties. It is always useful to know French in France but not needed for this course. I can only order beer in French but that was of no use for the days in Embraud that was all in white, red or rose.

I guess the framework will be the same in Gouax as in Embraud, but slightly different since it is a different place. But I am sure it will be a great experience and you will come home with a great new melodeon.
