It is our goal to provide a wide range of topics, presented in a traditional style in order for both the beginner and more advanced maker to build a solid foundation from which to branch out in their pursuit of excellence in violin making. Each participant will be allowed a dedicated 1/2 hour period with Mr. Darnton in which they may ask questions and/or present their projects.

Week 1: Design and edges, purfling and making purfling, archings, other topics as required (all 3 weeks)
Week 2: f-holes, graduations, bass bar
Week 3: Scrolls/neck/fingerboard/nuts and saddles, Setup


Mr. Darnton will be on hand to deal with all these issues and more. The sessions will not be limited to the topic at hand.
