PLATFORM DEDICATED TO THE

MAKING OF CONTEMPORARY INSTRUMENTS AND BOWS

Sibylle Ruppert

violin maker

"I completed a three year course at the Welsh School of Violin Making and

Repair in 1983 with a violin evaluated by Wolf Saunders and Charles

Beare.

In the following 4 years I worked for Gerriet Groth in Wiesbaden and Martin

Koch Löbner near Tübingen ,Germany.

Having emigrated with violin maker Gregory Walke to his native Canada,

we opened our workshop in 1988 in Paisley, Ontario.

I have worked for city shops and expanded my experience over the years

by taking courses in restoration techniques and acoustics.

Lately I divide my time between servicing string instruments in the region

and making new instruments. As active amateur cellist I am drawn to cello

making, have produced almost 40 cellos, while observing an equal number

created by my partner Gregory Walke.

I track the development of my instruments in the hands of my customers

wherever possible and seek the feed back of accomplished players."
