Horn Skills Class at Village Restorations in Hollidaysburg, PA

Roland Cadle and Art DeCamp will be teaching the spring Horn Skills Class at Village Restorations in Hollidaysburg, PA next week on April 12 & 13, 2024.  We have five participants scheduled and the featured horn styles will be Early Philadelphia and 4th Generation York County screw-tip horns.

Heating and forming horn bodies to shape, turning the main horn body ends round and concentric and turning the horn screw tip and wood butt end, then filing, scraping and finishing the horn body will all be part of the skills learned during this two-day class.  In addition, the horn dyeing and coloring process will be demonstrated and performed.  Those in the class will be exposed to both outboard turning techniques and turning items on the wood lathe between centers.

Art made up one of each type horn this week to use as "demonstrators" at the class along with several other original horns that will be available for students to see, handle and use as they make their chosen style of horn.   Here is a photo of the Early Philadelphia horn he made on top and the 4th Generation York horn on the bottom.  Both were made from originals which he had "in-hand" on the bench while he was making them.
