To best meet students’ interest in learning the French traditional method of bow making in its entirety—stick, frog and button—master bow makers, teachers, and colleagues Lynn Armour Hannings and George Rubino alternate summers at SCVMW. In 2020, Lynn Hannings will teach bow making. This hands-on workshop covers design, weight/balance, materials, tips, tool usage, finishing, and more. Lynn also teaches rehair and repair, two popular topics with practical application for students.
The bow making workshop is held very year in June. There are two one-week sessions running Monday through Friday; students may register for either session or for both. See this year’s dates.
Workshop hours are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm with a lunch break at noon. The facilities are open in the evenings and on the weekend between sessions for participants who wish to continue working on their own.
