Want to make a Dulsumer at The Rural Heritage Center, in Geneva,Fl.

There are only two places left in our dulcimer-making course. If you didn’t know we had such a course, it is because these classes are usually filled before we can announce them. That is why it is so rare to make this announcement.

This course is one of our “at your pace” classes. You tell us when you can meet to make it, whether it is Saturdays, every other Thursday, whatever. We conform to your schedule.

The tuition is $275, but there is a selection of wood and design. We guarantee that you will have a playable dulcimer at the end of the class.

For more information, please email ruralheritagecenter@gmail.com.
