Richard Osborne has been making instruments since 1997, when he completed a classical guitar under the tuition of Stephen Hill. He then rented a bench in Hill's workshop and worked with Hill doing repairs and restorations. He went full time in 2003, opening his own workshop in the Star Brewery in Lewes where he made and repaired acoustic guitars. In 2006 he moved to bigger premises and also started teaching guitar making. 2015 saw another move to mid Wales where he continues making instruments and teaching instrument making courses.
