Youenn Bothorel is a luthier based in Dublin, Ireland. His sensitivity to music and its instruments led him at 19 years old to Newark School of Violin Making, England, from which he graduated in 2001. After experiencing life and working in different workshops across the world, he established himself in Dublin in 2008 and devotes his time to the creation of violins, violas and cellos.

While Youenn draws his inspiration primarily from the great masters of classical violin making, he is also stimulated by the evolution in the contemporary making. He enjoys
sharing knowledge with fellow violin makers and has participated in various workshops and events. He is committed to understanding the unique requirements of individual
musicians and is keen to meet their expectations.

Youenn is an active member of the CLAC and some of his instruments are on display at the CLAC’s permanent exhibition in the heart of Paris.

The CLAC « Collectif de Lutherie et Archèterie Contemporaine » aims to contribute to the vibrancy of contemporary instrument making and to promote it. Its members share a common vision of their Art, based on a requirement of quality and honesty.
