Jan Strick

Violin Makers

In 1977 Jan Strick’s passion and talent for lutherie were recognised by the Liège-based bow maker and violin restorer Jacques Bernard. On Bernard’s advice, Jan studied in Mirecourt and Angers, in the purest traditions of French lutherie.

After Bernard retired, Jan succeeded him at Maison Bernard, which in 1986 was relocated to Brussels. Jan is in contact with numerous musicians and luthiers in Europe, Asia and America, and maintains a close relationship with the esteemed Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels, whereby competitors can benefit from Jan’s services for the duration of the contest. This has created international friendships that have developed over the years.
