PNCA offers evening and weekend classes for adults and young people. For adults we offer courses in art, craft, and design, as well as professional development classes. For children we have Saturday classes during the school year and week-long camps during the summer. In addition to our regular teen classes, we also offer immersive summer Pre-College Studios. Our blog below gives you an idea of some of the goings on, and you can see our full course catalogue online here.


Ukulele Class Six

uke body

I this week’s class we worked on preparing the neck block and a bit of catching up with constructing the body.

The first step of the neck was gluing the neck piece together at the scarf joint (which were pre-cut, thanks to Frank). We put glue on and and allowed it to dry on the exposed joint to provide a tackier surface when they are glued and clamped.

To clamp them a jig was set up on the table and the neck laid on its side. The jig prevented the two pieces from sliding apart.

After drying the heel was added to the neck. This was much simpler glue and clamp job.

Next week we finish the neck shape and fingerboard.
