#Pianodrome Wood ID Workshop

Saturday 14 April

The average piano is made up of between 8 and 16 different species of wood. Each part is designed carefully to achieve a very specific purpose – the hammers must be tough, the soundboard should be resonant and the outer shell beautiful. Join Daniel Ridley-Ellis and Stefan Lehneke from the Centre for Wood Technology at  Edinburgh Napier University and Andrew Gibson of the Wood Technology Society to discover which wood is used for each part of the piano and how to tell your beech from your birch.

Presented by Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh
