     I have just booked a place, looking forward to learning something new.    just a query,  is it a demo, or hands on instruction?? or maybe a bit of both:?    like many other members I have a selection of" projects",( wrecks)..      is there any suggestions about how many we can bring!!!!     just being cheeky,  put me in the picture.  should I ring you rees,nearer the time and ask if you need any wrecks for demo purposes..!   best wishes Brian....

We've only got four hours so it will be mostly demo.
Perhaps we could devote the last 45 minutes or so to peruse some old wrecks and offer advice though not really time for hands on stuff.
You could all have a go at waxing reeds, that should be fun ;)

The workshop is aimed at those wishing to keep their regular instruments in good playable order.
I will be demonstrating on mostly modern instruments.
Restoration is another kettle of wax.

  thanks rees,  the workshop sounds like a perfect introduction to the mystery of box fettling. I may trouble you for a few spare valve leathers for the bass side and a leather corner for a bellows !!  cheeky as ever ..  brian..
