Violin and harpsichord making at Colonial Williamsburg

This documentary from 1976 is great. Making instruments in period costume, using old techniques and proper tools.

Yesterday I heard that they are looking for an apprentice harpsichord maker at Colonial Williamsburg. This would be a dream job for me, and if it were in Europe I would jump at the chance. But unfortunately it’s a bit out of my neighborhood. Moving to America is not an option. Maybe somebody else is interested? You can find the job description here.
