Oberlin Violin Makers Workshop

Raising the level of Violin Making

The Oberlin Violin Makers Workshop is an annual two-week, intensive, graduate level program for professional violin makers. Participants are active in the profession and are expected to have completed a 4 year violin making program or the equivalent.

With emphasis on the health and safety of our participants and of the Oberlin Community, the 2020 Oberlin violin makers workshop has been canceled due to the covid-19 pandemic. We have every hope that the workshop will continue in 2021.


Lectures, demonstrations, large and small meetings, and hands-on construction of group projects, individual work and  informal discussions.
