Presented in cooperation with the Chicago School of Violin Making
Understanding the materials: Ground, Color, and Varnish
and Application techniques to create your varnish.
The workshop focus is on application. Understanding the components and interaction of the materials will be addressed as we varnish. Participants are required to bring two instruments. One in the white and one prepared with a Ground. Each of the directors will also varnish an instrument during the workshop. Matching the maker’s vision of the finished instrument to the correct materials and application techniques allows varnishing to be an intentional and controlled part of violin making.
Location: Chicago School of Violin Making
