“Online training is not less valuable than in-person training.”
Nine months ago, this realisation led to my initial idea of creating an online course in violin restoration. I am excited to be able to finally launch my Online Violin Neck Graft Course today. I hope that this course will become a valuable teaching resource for professional violin restorers at any stage of their career, Violin Shops and Schools.
When fitting a new neck after doing a neckgraft or neck re-set, I usually plug the mortise with a solid piece of willow and then fit pieces of spruce along the edge. The missing purfling either side of the neck usually gets drawn on afterwards.
I got my first glimpse today of the beginning of my new Online Course on Crack Repair and Retouching and am really pleased with what I’ve seen so far. Lots of editing to be getting on with over the next few weeks and hopefully we will be able to publish it this summer!
