English Bows

For something really special, I am proud to feature beautiful hand made bows by the London bow maker Stephen Thomson.

Receiving tuition in bow repair from distinguished bow restorers Derek Wilson, Anna Tummers and Linda Grove, Stephen provided an in-house bow repairing service for J.P.Guivier.

Since February 2006, he has been self employed in south London, specialising in bow making and restoration. He makes his bows according to the English bow making tradition, but looks to French bows for his stylistic influences, particularly the work of Alfred Lamy and Eugene Sartory.   

Stephen is known for his exquisite workmanship and deep understanding of bow technology. This means that his bows are always in demand.
