Oberlin Violin Making Course
|from Sunday, June 12, 2011|
to Saturday, June 25, 2011
Since 1986 the VSA has sponsored workshops in conjunction with Oberlin College in Oberlin Ohio. The workshops, offered every summer, offer an outstanding and important opportunity for violin and bow makers to learn methods and subtleties associated with fine stringed instruments and bows. The original Restoration Workshop was created by the noted restorer Vahakn Nigogosian. Today there are six programs held during the summer, which offer in-depth instruction by a distinguished faculty supplemented by renowned luthiers. The current programs are: Violin Making (advanced level); Bow Making (advanced level); Bow Restoration and Repair; Instrument Restoration and Repair; Acoustics; Bass Setup, Repair and Acoustics.
