Violin and Bow Making Summer School 2017

Violin & Bow Making Summer School 2017

Date: Monday 10th July 2016 to Friday 28th July 2016

Venue: St. John’s Central College of Further Education, Sawmill Street, Cork

Cost: To be advised - will depend on the number of participants

Hugo Vegter is running a 3 week Violin and Bow Making course in Cork City at St. John’s Central College starting on 10th July 2016.  This course has been running for over 20 years with Hugo taking over the running of the course from Bill Patterson in 2009.  Year after year enthusiastic participants return to complete works on their instrument learning all the different aspects of violin and bow making, from selection of the correct wood to the proper application of the varnish. 

Participants can attend the full 3 weeks of the course or they can attend specific days throughout the 3 week period as their schedule allows.  Space is limited on the course to a maximum of 10 participants per day so advance booking for desired days is advised.  As we want to ensure the best cost value for each participant we hold off on fixing a cost for the course until we know how many people will be attending and then working out the fairest cost based on the numbers.  Costs will be calculated on a daily, weekly and full 3 week duration basis and should be available in May 2017.
