Check out Fred Woodley's "Make and Play Project":
This Matt-Wood model is the prototype I designed and made for the "Make and Play" project, funded by the "Millennium Award Scheme". There were four organizers, Sally Whytehead, Arthur Nichols, Julie Pitts, and Myself. After much deliberation we finally started the course, with the first meeting on Thursday the 3rd of August 2000. A total of 21 dulcimers were being made, each one consisting of 12 treble and 11 bass courses, 2 strings per course. There were 9 families attending this first session totalling 16 persons in all, with ages ranging from 7 years old to ?. Our second course started on Saturday the 2nd of September 2000 with 8 families involved, totalling 19 persons with a similar age range.
