The association BVBM asbl-vzw (Belgian Violin & Bow Makers) gathers professional violin and bow makers practising in Belgium.

It was born from the desire to exchange and share our know-how between peers, to communicate and reflect together on subjects concerning professional ethics, training, legislation and regulations in force, administrative questions, relations with public authorities and institutions, etc.

More broadly, we want to introduce our professions to the general public, musicians and institutional decision-makers in order to make them aware of the reality of arts and crafts.

We also pay particular attention to interactions with musicians who are not always aware of the improvements we can make to their working tools.

Our activities

  • Sharing of administrative procedures
