This hands-on workshop focuses on the French school of bow making; renowned for their playability as well as artistic beauty.

During Bow Making, you will work on your bows independently with personalized guidance from the instructor. The one-on-one instructional format is designed to maximize your time and talents. You may attend one or two weeks, although two weeks is recommended to finish a stick. All skill levels are welcome. It is helpful but not mandatory to take Bow Rehairing in advance of this class.
