The Violin making workshops are extremely popular at Halsway Manor, with many of the participants coming back year after year. The workshop gives maximum continuous time at the workbench supported by Neville Gardner, who has been teaching violin making for the last sixteen years. He is joined by Corrie Schrijver. The group size is necessarily small to ensure that each tutor can give participants plenty of patient and knowledgeable support.

Start 2pm Mon; depart after lunch on Fri.

Who’s it For?

This course is for all levels of ability and beginners are very welcome. As well as the violin family, support can also be given for making a rebec (an ancient ancestor of the violin). The class size is limited so that participants have plenty of support from the two tutors. Before enrolling please contact Neville Gardner – Neville@nevillejgardner.co.uk – to discuss the suitability of the course for your needs.

The Team

Neville Gardner was a University Lecturer and has been teaching violin making for over twenty years.
