It is with great pleasure that for the first time in Norway I can present Thomas Giquet, bowmaker from Brittany, France. Thomas began his career at at the French violin making school in Mirecourt. After his “Diplôme des métiers d’art”, he practiced as a violin maker at Aouat et Rouveyre. After 5 years of maintaining instruments and bows, he left Lyon to practice in another renowned workshop, Desmarchelier-Le Canu in Lille. There he perfected his skills as a bowmaker doing maintenance, restoration at a high level and production for the next 5 years. With this solid training, he decided to go back to Brittany and focus on the creation of bows.
The cello bow is made of the finest pernambuco, and must be tried. The bow is sold with a certificate from the bowmaker.
