Hands on Harps

We’re especially proud of our Rainbow Harp, conceived by dyslexic harper and harp teacher Morwenna Louttit-Vermaat, which opens up the world of harping to people with special needs, and anyone who has ever gone cross-eyed when looking at sheet music. Come and see us to experience it for yourself.
