The Oberlin Bowmakers Workshop

Here's a few pictures taken during the 2004 workshop.  The fellow wearing the "fez" is Jean Grunberger, the lead demonstrator for the workshop.  Under his direction, a "shop bow", a silver-mounted violin bow was made.  The various operations to fabricate this bow were done by each of the workshop participants.  The sale of the bow paid for our meals during the two week session.
