Finish a fiddle/violin "in the white" (first coat of varnish is possible). Explore advanced techniques including varnish, use of hide glue, and maintenance, and learn some of the fiddle's/violin's history and myths. Beginners are welcome, though some woodworking experience is helpful. Special tools and forms will be provided. Note: Additional materials fee is estimated at $250.
