About Ulf:

Ulf was initially a student at the  Scandinavian  Violin  Making  School. Ulf decided to leave his studies to pursue a deepening passion for bows. Early tutelage under C. Hans Karl Schmidt later led to periods of study with Charles Espey and Brian Tunnicliffe. Before pursuing bowmaking full-time, Ulf worked for five years as archetier at the N. Nilsson Violin Shop in Malmo. Ulf's bows are in demand by leading players across Europe. His work has won prizes at international competitions and will be featured in "The Great Contemporary Bow Makers of the 21st Century - Volume 3" by Darling publications. A devoted teacher, Ulf has taught bow-making at Cambridge, the Scandinavian Violin Making School and to apprentices, such as Eric Fournier and Jordan Scapinello in his studio on the family horse farm in the south of Sweden.
