Violin Restoration

A positive aspect to moving to and opening a violin restoration workshop as part of our home in South Devon, will be the ability to work in a very more relaxed and focused environment. Moving away from the frenetic pressures of working 9 to 5 in a commercial workshop with all its distractions, will allow me to get back to the core business of fine violin restoration and dealing.
