New Year

Posted on | December 24, 2012 | 1 Comment|

The workshop is now closed for 2012 and opens again on January 2nd 2013

We’ve had a great year, with wonderful instruments and clients coming into our workshop.  A few of the interesting instruments we saw surprisingly came out of storage from the Canadian government. My assistant is now restoring a French violin and English viola from their collection.  Next year these 18th Century instruments may be heard during official government functions in Ottawa.

It was also a successful year for making new instruments, with every instrument that we produced in 2012 now with their new owners.

Thank you to all our supportive musician friends!
