This afternoon Philip spoke to Helen Shields on ABC Radio Hobart as part of her Handmade’s Tales series.
Philip is a quiet gentleman so many of you may not be familiar with all of his story. In their conversation today, Philip shared with Helen his love of making music, of making instruments that make music. Philip also tells of some of the colourful characters and overseas adventures in New York with Kolstein & Sons and in France as a Churchill Fellow which brought him to his atelier in Hobart. Tasmania.
Philip Smith is a master maker of string instruments, violin, viola, cello, double bass and their bows. To learn more about his story, you can listen here:
