Violin Varnish Workshops

"Practical and Aesthetic Violin Varnishing"

Understanding the materials: Ground, Color, and Varnish

and how to use them to create your varnish.

Workshop conducted by:

Joe Robson

Marilyn Wallin

Roman Barnas

The workshop will focus on application.
Understanding the components and interaction of Ground, Color, and Varnish will be addressed as we varnish.
Particpants must bring an instrument [violin or viola] ready for varnishing.
Each of the directors will varnish a violin during the workshop.
Matching the maker's vision of the finished instrument to the correct materials and application techniques allows varnishing to be an intentional and controlled part of violinmaking.
