  5. Hello all, Our trade is full of repetitive tasks. Repetitive tasks can become traditions and rituals. One of my traditions is this book: The Nature and Art of Workmanship by David Pye. For the past 10 years my preparation for varnish workshops has begun with re-reading this book. So my prep has begun again.I will have 2 workshops this year:Practical & Artistic Violin Varnishing held April 25th – May 2nd at theChicago School of Violin Making. This workshop is co-taught with Marilyn Wallin and Todd Goldenberg. Fundamentals of Oil Varnishing held March 1st – March 6th at Learning Trade Secrets in Ashland, Ohio., which I teach myself. For information on either please contact me at
