Introduction to violin making – Making a lyre

Reviews: Average review: 5 Number of reviews: (5) Level: Beginner Category:

Would you like to discover woodworking by building your own instrument? Are you interested in violin making and want to learn more about the sound properties of wood?

Adored for its melodious voice and angelic appearance, the lyre is an ancient instrument still very popular today. It is also an accessible object, both in its design and in its approach to music.

During this 4-hour workshop, animated by Enzo, we will approach the different steps of a violin maker’s work: the cutting of the wood, the drilling, the gluing, the acoustic tests, the perfect sanding and the tuning of the instrument. You will also learn to use several woodworking machines, such as the band saw, drill press, jigsaw, router and sanders.

Skills required: none, this workshop is open to all stringed instrument enthusiasts!

Price includes tools, wood, instrument hardware and lots of pro tips!

Nous sommes autonomes mais très bien encadrés pour créer notre lyre. C’est un vrai plaisir de pouvoir rapidement créer quelque chose !

J’aime le bois et en faire chez moi est impossible. Les affutés me permettent de palier ce manque tout en étant guidée et en bonne compagnie

Enzo a été très attentif et nous a permis de prendre en main rapidement les differents outils mis à disposition!

A refaire! J’aurai adoré faire l’attelier de Ukulele 🙂
