Training

Project Overview

My project is to create high quality harps with innovative manufacturing techniques of which I have the knowledge. In order to be able to carry out this work, I need a starting capital to enhance my skills at the prestigious Boulle school of art in Paris, and for the purchase of missing tools and materials for the manufacture of harps. The instruments will be 100% Swiss made.

Cabinet and Harpmaker

I have a great appreciation for art and wood since early childhood.

Being a harpmaker, I am involved in artistic life and thanks to this profession, my interest for fine craftsmanship has grown over the years. I would like to deploy my expertise in order to acquire many different skills.

It is an artistic and meticulous job that requires a lot of responsibility, concentration and knowledge. I am convinced that a routine is necessary in order to make high quality harps and I have the required experience to make this possible. I am interested in culture and history. I speak three languages; French, German and English. It is with great enthusiasm that I look forward to developing my profession which I take very seriously. Thank you
