In this intense 5-day workshop, David Forbes will demonstrate the traditional French method of frog making as learned from Bill Salchow and Stephane Thomachot.
Construction of a violin and cello frog using only a minimal number of hand tools will be demonstrated during the week. Check syllabus for tool list. Emphasis will be on a system and order of work using traditional gauges. Soldering of a ferrule will be demonstrated. Tool skill level will determine how much is accomplished during the course. Some students may not complete an entire frog and button.
Tuition includes materials and lunch.
