Luthiers sans Frontieres-UK

Supporting musicians around the world

LSF-UK is part of the international network 'Luthiers Sans Frontieres'

We are professional luthiers who offer free training missions of 2-3 weeks in countries where there are no skilled repairers of instruments and bows of the violin family.

Since our foundation in 2007 our volunteers have conducted twenty training missions in eight countries on five continents.

We just completed a two-week mission in Kosovo and are in talks about further missions for 2024.

We are a UK registered charity no: 1168809
