Bespoke banjos and other folk stringed instruments

I build custom, bespoke banjos and other folk stringed instruments. My aim is to build instruments that are easy on the environment by using British felled or reclaimed timber from antique furniture/ architectural salvage etc, that way I can use beautiful and exotic woods and still sleep at night. I also design and make most of the brass hardware I come from a fine art background (MA Fine Art Central St. Martins) and currently work as a fine art fabricator / prop maker. Ive pretty much given up my own art for my obsession with the banjo. Every build is a unique piece of playable sculpture through which I can express my love for the medium, the tradition and design whilst also focusing on great tone and playability.
