FS7 II competition – “Violin Maker” short documentary

I have been a luthier from the age of 15. Being a luthier is to call upon all of one’s senses: sight, touch, hearing and smell. Instrument-making is above all a manual profession, but also requires good knowledge of music, sculpture, varnishing, acoustics, and history. Each instrument that I create is unique – a singular and original creation. This trade does not consist simply of working with materials: there is also a sensual dimension which means that being a luthier is an artistic profession. One of the objectives of art is to nourish artists, and a luthier’s work is exactly that. I am Jacques Toussaint, artisan.
