Evan Orman

After a formal training as a string player, Evan developed his fascination with instrument making, specialising in bow-making. Learning his skills at the Oberlin summer bow-making workshops gave him the opportunity to study with many gifted bow makers. In 1996 he began working with Rock Eggan in Denver before moving to his own Denver shop - re-hairing, repairing and restoring bows.
