Mathieu Pradels

Luthier in Paris, France


Maker of instruments of the viol and violin families, I studied the craft with Shem Mackey at London Guildhall University, UK. Between 2002 and 2009 I have worked in workshops in Paris and Toronto where I perfected my construction, restoration and set-up skills. In 2009 I set up my own workshop, where I make and work on instruments for young students, teachers as well as professional and amateur musicians. Since 2016 I moved in Judith Kraft's workshop with whom I have the opportunity to extend my knowledge of instrument making.
