British Violin Making Association
SUPPORTING THE CRAFTS OF VIOLIN AND BOW MAKING IN THE UK & WORLDWIDE
Welcome to the BVMA
The British Violin Making Association, formed in 1995, is one of the foremost violin making associations in the world, with about 500 members based both in the UK and abroad.
Our aims are to:
- Raise the standard of skill and expertise of makers and restorers
- Share information among makers and restorers
- Promote the craft to the general public
- Promote fellowship among all those interested in violins and bows.
The BVMA exists to promote the crafts of violin and bow making. We do this primarily through:
