A Violin’s Journey
Saturday 26th October
10am – 1pm
This Saturday, as part of our regular Saturday Sessions, local violin maker Peter Reid will be in the store to demonstrate how he makes his beautiful hand-crafted violins.
From the tree in the forest to the instrument in your hand, Peter will detail the processes that he, and the materials he uses, go through to create his elegant instruments. Peter will discuss how different timbers affect tone, what timbers he uses and how he constructs his violins using traditional techniques.
With demonstrations from local violin players and information on how to maintain and care for your violin, this is an invaluable session for those interested not only in fine music, but also in woodworking and the intricacies of making instruments.
