Gmisserlis 1155x1155

The materials on day one

With sounds of rehearsals in the background, luthiers Stefan-Peter Greiner and Mark Jennings remove the mould from the violin they are working on collaboratively while resident at the International Musicians Seminar (IMS) at in Cornwall, England.

‘The project will help the musicians to learn about their instruments from the inside out, while providing an educational blog for followers across the world,’ according to the IMS website. ‘Watch with us as a violin is made, step-by-step, inspired by the unique environment of IMS Prussia Cove. The completed instrument will very generously be donated to the organisation by the makers, for which we are extremely grateful.’
