Fiddle Making Workshop

Aesthetics

Schooling
Edward Hessler

The jig has been up for a long time. I need to say that out loud.

It must be clear to you that I like watching people work more than working. I confess that this is partly true. What I love watching is people with brains in their fingertips.  And I love hearing people talk about their work.

This lovely film was shot at the Chicago School of Violin Making where the emphasis is on making violins by hand.  The film is short, ~ 6 minutes.  There is some sound, including music but mostly this is a meditation on human creativity and abilities.

Ah, the human touch.
