From his early childhood, Bogidar has been passionate about music and handwork, and especially woodwork. He discovered his vocation whilst studying for a degree in Musicology at University. At that point, he realised that both of his passions could be combined in equal proportions in the violin making world.
Ever since commencing the lutherie course at the “Ecole Nationale de Lutherie de Mirecourt”, he has taken immense pleasure in what he does. Instrument making is the activity that comes to Bogidar most naturally and he always develops his knowledge and skills by regular contact with the musicians. He also has a great interest in developing the aesthetic side of instruments and always concentrates on improving their sound.
Since 2013, he’s etablished in Caromb (84330), a small and peacefull village at the bottom of the Mont Ventoux.
