The building of a fit for purpose workshop and studio to help a skilled craftsman perfect his craft and maximise a good customer experience. 


The promoter is a highly skilled craftsman who has turned a passion for his niche craft into a successful business.  He hand makes violins mainly for professional musicians. His makeshift workshop on the farm was too cramped, making it difficult to maintain the high standards required, thus he applied for funding for a fit for purpose workshop and studio.


Funded under Axis 3, through SWARD, the project involved the construction of a, installation of a workbench and purchase of computer. This project has enabled the promoter to have an environment best suited to his craft.  His high standards can be maintained and he can properly display his craft to potential customers.
