Thank you. I will contact Kevin before too long. I was reading early issues of Classical Guitar and Guitar magazine and in an article about Maggie Ridout, I learned that she was a student, in the mid-1970s, alongside Kevin Aram at the Guitar Workshop in Camden, where David Dyke, the tonewood supplier taught guitar making. The articles are here (PDF
). I think these can be considered 'fair use' and are of particular interest because Ridout is (was) one of the very few female UK classical guitar makers. I assume there have been more women making classical guitars in the UK although I’m not aware of any yet.
