Alexandra Pye is a Bristol-based classical guitar maker. With sponsorship from QEST and The Carpenters' Company, she went to Granada to study with expert luthiers Stephen Hill and Pablo Requena at the European Institute of Guitar Making.
Here she was able to immerse herself in the traditions of guitar-making, and learn to build a powerful concert instrument using techniques and timbers new to her.
The trip also whet her interest in Flamenco, and she now plans to explore this very traditional field of luthiery whilst also researching the contemporary use of carbon fibre in guitar building.
She showed an early instrument at the Concourse of Elegance and plans to exhibit at West Dean Guitar Festival 2015. She sells privately and through the Bristol Spanish Guitar Centre.
