Luthier programs for older folks

November 8, 2020, 11:45 AM · Hello all!

A while ago, I recall seeing a video about a luthier program for seniors who have no major plans to become great violin makers. I remember a lovely lady working on a violin and talking about the experience, and I remember a cat walking around the workshop. I thought I found the link on this site...but can't seem to find it again.

Does anyone remember or know what I'm talking about (or know of such a program)?

I appreciate it! Hope everyone is well!
