Artisan No.4 - Jonathan Woolston - Violin Maker

A couple of days ago I photographed Jonathan Woolston, the violin maker in his studio in Cambridge for my Artisans project.

The level of skill, knowledge, passion and manual dexterity displayed was amazing, using a wide range of tools and devices, each of which left very little room for error.

What I had thought was moulded wood is in fact carved in a surprisingly vigorous way at times as shown by this flying shaving.

You can see more pictures in a slideshow.
