- How hair is produced for use
- Checks of bow and frog
- Common problems
- Making and fitting wedges
- Sourcing and choosing materials.
Even if you have no woodwork experience, you can still succeed in this course though most of our students have some experience in this or musical instrument making.
The tutor will give you feedback throughout your course.
