Friday, August 4, 3:30-5:00 p.m.
WRWA will visit the most skilled luthier (maker of stringed instruments) in New England. Local craftsman Doug Cox studied his craft in Mittenwald, Germany, at one of the oldest violin schools in the world. Doug will open his Brattleboro shop to us for a look at how these fine instruments, worth more than their weight in gold, are produced. This tour will offer a look into the maximum economic value added that our local woodlands can provide.
Due to space restrictions, attendance is limited to 18 participants, and all must be at lease 16 years old. If you want to attend, please contact County Forester Bill Guenther by July 28 at Bill.Guenther@vermont.gov or 802-257-7967 (ext. 305). Bill will provide all participants with the West Brattleboro carpool location, where participants will meet at 3:15 p.m.
WRWA is offering this program first to members. After July 28, we will open up any available slots to the public. Please note that Doug’s studio is not wheelchair accessible.
