Buenos Aires, Argentina
This workshop has been where I’ve been based since 2005. Before that I was working at the I Violini shop in Buenos Aires as a luthier and restorer, having begun my training aged 14 with Franco Ponzo, one of the best-known teachers of lutherie in Argentina. I’ve also spent time learning the craft with Horacio Piñeiro in Mexico, Ivan Guimarães in Brazil and Burkhard Meyer in Buenos Aires among others. I chose this area of the capital because it has an excellent view, very little noise, and it’s situated only four blocks from the Teatro Colón. It’s also regarded as a musical district, with quite a few other violin and guitar makers working here.
