In this class, you will use precut and partially assembled parts to learn proper tool use and the skills needed to make a violin. Making a violin from scratch usually requires 200 hours or more; making a violin from a kit will let you find out if violin making is for you, without such of a significant commitment.
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.
