More information on violin making courses
The course begins on Sunday afternoon with tea, meeting the instructors, and an introduction for new students explaining what they can expect to achieve in their week's activity. From Monday to Friday, 9am to 5.30pm each student works on his/her project.
There are breaks for demonstrations, discussions, and for lunch. Tea and coffee are available on the premises. On one or two evenings during the week a lecture or discussion is provided by a professional player, maker, someone in an allied trade, or an academic studying the history or acoustics of instruments.
Saturday morning is used to discuss plans for further work. The course usually ends with a 'DIY' lunch and, if the participants wish, can be followed by some informal music making. If you play, and especially if you have already made an instrument, please bring it along.
