A week of violin making at the UNH Violin Craftsmanship Institute is much like being in the workshop of a full time violin making school. Participants will progress on their own instruments at their own pace with their own tools. Instruction will be given to each student, and to small groups, to individualize the learning experience. There will also be daily lectures with discussion, a different topic every day on subjects of interest to the particular class. Ample time for individual progress is built into the daily schedule. An atmosphere of mutual discovery and exploration will leave the participants with advancements toward completion on their own projects, and a renewed zeal for this timeless and classic craft.
Class will meet in person from 9am to 5pm, with additional open workshop hours in the evening.
Materials & Tools
Professionals and curious amateurs may bring one or two violins or violas unfinished, at any stage of completion, made on any model. It is beneficial if two instruments are at the same stage, so that a learned skill can be immediately repeated, but this is not a requirement.
Please contact instructor Todd Goldenberg at firstname.lastname@example.org for individual tool needs.
