Used and Worn - The Violin Maker

USED AND WORN : Violin Maker Documentary from Harald Spjelkavik on Vimeo.

This is a beautifully crafted video  from Harald Spjelkavik.  Creating a musical instrument is perhaps one of the most skilled crafts, the violin maker in this piece not only trained for four years to learn how to make violins but also trained as a professional violinist - it must be rare for the two passions to collide in this way, and yet so important for the maker of the violin to understand the needs of his customers.

We hope you enjoy watching this fascinating video, it's very inspiring to watch such skilled craftsmen at work and to know there are still people left to repair all the beautiful musical instruments that are old and worn, but still have a little music left in them.
