Fabienne Gauchet trained at the Newark School of Violin Making from where she graduated successfully in 1998. She continued her training through apprenticeships, mainly in France, her birth country. Established in Canada since 2000, she worked in the renowned workshop of Wilder & Davis luthiers for fifteen years. She had the great opportunity to work on fine instruments and to meet many talented musicians. Enriched by these experiences, she now devotes her time to working on new instruments of her own. She received a certificate of workmanship for her cello in the 2014 VSA competition and for her violin in 2016, and was a finalist at the Viola 2016 competition in Paris.
