The International violin making school has a great website with a large gallery of images from every stage of making a violin.

There is a long course and a shorter course depending on prior education and experience. Studies include Italian, English and history, as well as history of art and technical studies of the instrument, violin making, acoustic physics, varnishing and much more. Foreign students must demonstrate a good command of Italian language, sound workshop practice and violin playing skills.

Well worth checking out!
