I taught myself how to build instruments on my own. It all started from the desire to reconstruct my father’s old violin. It was in a really bad way and now, after the work I’d done to it, it’s got a new lease of life and is being played by us until this day.

I started the workshop because we needed instruments for our own use. Now I make, among others, violins, hurdy-gurdys, nyckelharpas, pipes, baraban drums, moraharpa, etc.
