Ilja Grawert Violin makers Shop front in Brisbane QLD
Enjoy the quality only a fully European trained violin maker can deliver. I apply my extensive experience of 40 years as a European violin maker not only to professional violins but as well to student instruments . You will benefit from always speaking to me and being sure no one else will work on your instrument.

I moved from my shop location in Woolloongabba and am now working from either my Brisbane/The Gap workshop or my North Queensland workshop.

…for the Australian musician

  “This trade is an old worldly trade and its beauty lays in the time and patience it takes to create by hand…bespoke unique instruments which not only have to look but to sound beautiful and last several life times.”

Contact me to arrange an appointment for a visit either to my Brisbane/The Gap workshop or my North QLD/near Whitsundays workshop

I decided to concentrate on my profession as a Violin Maker and spend more time in the workshop doing what I do best: manufacturing, restoring,repairing and improving the sound and play-ability of bowed stringed instruments— simply being a professional craftsman. I moved from my open shop location to cater for this highest level of craftsmanship.
