Our trustee- a publisher!

RAB Trustee Helen Michetschläger recently published her book ‘Violin Varnish: notes and articles from the workshop of Koen Padding’. This documents the expertise of the late Koen Padding, who was world-renowned for his work on violin varnish. As part of the project, she sold on behalf of the family the contents of his workshop; tools, wood, books and varnish materials, with a percentage of the proceeds donated to the RAB Trust to fund future awards and projects.
