George Parfitt
Ana Scholar
Spring | 2019

Using self-taught skills, George Parfitt has already found some commercial success creating guitars from recycled materials.

George is now developing his craft further by studying an FdA Historic Craft Practices at West Dean College of Arts and Conservation, with a focus on historic musical instruments. Funding from QEST will support George in the second year of his studies, in which he will develop skills such as advanced instrument head carving – a unique feature of Violas. George looks forward to becoming an established Luthier within the UK.
