Violin Society of America

Oberlin Workshop
Goodkind Library

Since 1986 the VSA has sponsored workshops in conjunction with Oberlin College in Oberlin Ohio. The workshops offered every summer offer an outstanding and important opportunity for violin and bow makers to learn methods and subtleties in the art of making fine stringed instruments and bows. The original Restoration Workshop was created by the noted restorer Vahakn Nigogosian. Today there are five programs held during the month of July, which offer in-depth instruction by a distinguished faculty supplemented by renowned luthiers. The current programs are: Violin Making (advanced level), Bow Making (advanced level), Intermediate Bow Making, Setup and Acoustics.
