As a teenager, Yannick spent most of his time in his uncle’s violin and bow making workshops, the famous Loïc Le Canu and Bernard Millant establishment. As soon as he had a spare moment, he would rush to the workshops to immerse himself in “their warm and friendly atmosphere, and the excitement of being in close proximity with prestigious instruments’, as he puts it. He quickly became particularly interested in bows, their making, restoration and authentication. “I was fortunate to learn all aspects of this trade in this prestigious bowmaking workshop, as well as to be involved with research carried out by the workshop in this field”, remembers Yannick. Having made bow expertise his profession, Yannick now participates in the preparation of the most important international auctions held in Vichy.

Before becoming a key participant in auctions in his expert capacity, Yannick used to visit the sales of auction houses both in France and abroad to view as many bows as possible. He wanted to continue to sharpen his eye by learning to recognize the peculiarities of each maker’s style, and to distinguish between the various schools of making. This meticulous research and all the accumulated knowledge has, in turn, fed his own bowmaking, whose excellence was rewarded by two silver medals at the City of Paris competition and five gold medals in international competitions, and won Yannick a ‘Best French Workers’ award in 2008. He has now been designated ‘hors-concours’ on account of his numerous awards and medals, but continues to be involved in competitions, this time as judge and lecturer.
