Joanne Van Bosterhaut started her musical education at an early age by playing the cello in an academy. In 2004, she started a master's degree in musicology at the Université Libre de Bruxelles and a training as a violin maker at the Centrum voor muziekinstrumentenbouw in Puurs, Belgium.


In 2013, she joined the Atelier Flagey in Brussels, which she currently shares with bow maker Victor Bernard.  She is a founding member of Ekho, an association dedicated to the promotion of contemporary instrument making created in 2014. 


The relationship between luthier and musician is fundamental in the evolution of her research on sound and in the development of the playing comfort of her instruments.

Joanne Van Bosterhaut continued her training with renowned violin makers such as Isabelle Wilbaux , Philippe Van Geffel , Lorenazo Frignani and Francis Kuttner in Cremona.



The King Baudoin Foundation awarded her a grant in the framework of the "Education and Talent Platform". She is a member of the BVBM (Belgian violin and bow makers asbl), the ALADFI (association of violin and bow makers for the development of instrument making) and the UAP (Union of heritage craftsmen).
