A day from the life of a violin maker – be like Marcin Groblicz
The beginners’ group is aimed at the Poznan public and all those who want to feel for a moment like maestro Antonio Stradivari or our great Polish master luthier Marcin Groblicz. No previous knowledge of violin making is required to take part in the workshop.
During the workshop, participants will learn about the history of violin making, visit a violin maker’s workplace, become acquainted with the basic tools, and make a piece of the violin themselves under the watchful eye of a master.
