Woodbridge Violins

Environmental portraits

For the past 28 years Russell has been supplying, restoring and repairing high quality violins, violas, cellos and bows from his Woodbridge based workshop.

You can’t move for instruments in the space. It’s a meandering 16th century network of rooms and staircases packed with violins on the walls, hanging from cellings and in various states of repair in the workshop. The space definitely wears it’s 28 years of craft well. It’s a place that lives and breathes these instruments.

We spent the morning with Russell and Jonathan as they worked on some current projects.
