Lecture: My approach to lute making, repair and restauration.
In this lecture Stephen will talk about the methods he uses in both lute making and restoration. What can be expected is a lively, interesting two hours, in which he will focus mainly on the way he deals with specific problems he encounters in his workshop. Learn some practical tips and tricks from this fine craftsman.
Stephen Gottlieb has been making instruments of the lute family for over thirty years. He also has considerable experience of restoring old lutes to both playing condition and museum standards.
He trained as an architect, and taught himself lutemaking by studying, measuring and drawing original old instruments in many of the British and European collections. His work is closely based on this research, and varies from direct copies and lutes in a regional or a particular maker's style, to original designs of his own. His aim is to follow the proportions, constructional concepts and materials (including the all-important strings) used in the golden age of these great instruments.
He has his workshop is in a quiet mews in East Finchley, North London.
