We offer a unique and intensive hands-on program in such fields as guitar building, furniture making & turning. Our degrees and certificates are suited to fit your goals, whether it's pursuing a career in woodworking/lutherie, or merely honing your skills as a hobbyist.
The approach we take is a combination of old-world and modern techniques,
providing the most comprehensive woodworking and lutherie education available
in the region. The breadth of experience at Red Rocks is second to none. We
provide a variety of excellent courses in three paths of learning - furniture,
craft and lutherie. Our classes are scheduled in the day, evening and during
the weekend in order to allow students to further their education without
interrupting their careers.
The average class size is 12 students. Each class with 10 or more students will have a teaching assistant as well as the instructor. The school is located within the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, in Lakewood, Colorado.
