Repairs and Restoration

Peter Ratcliff - Luthier
Peter was born in Geneva, Switzerland of Anglo-Italian parents.
At the age of eighteen, he came to study violin making and repairing in London, where he completed a four year apprenticeship, and was awarded distinctions in both violin making and stringed instrument restoration.
A violin made by Peter won a distinction from the Delme String Quartet for tonal excellence in the last of the Facta Britannia violin making competitions.
Peters work both as a violinmaker and bow maker is much appreciated by professionals, amateurs and student musicians.
