Save The Date: Lutherie Day 2023

By Newark College

The 23rd annual spring seminar for violin makers

Save the date: the next Lutherie Day is 29 April 2023

Lutherie was founded to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, for meeting friends old and new, and for student violin makers to interact with professionals.

The 2023 conference will celebrate the first 50 years of Newark School of Violin Making. The speakers; William Castle, Daniel Kogge, Lorraine Bitaud, Victor Bernard and Niall Flemming are all former students from different eras, representing the range of skills and interests of Newark alumni.

On the evening of Friday 28 April we are holding a buffet at Newark Town Hall to offer the opportunity of a reunion for former Newark students. 

The day before the main conference we present a forum specifically for student violin makers and those in the first two years since graduation.
