Meet the New Brunswick Arts Board 1st Vice-Chair, Gwyneth Wilbur!
Currently a resident of Charlotte County, Gwyneth Wilbur has lived in Fredericton, Caraquet, and Montreal. It was in Montreal that she discovered her love of music and musical instrument making, and she proceeded to study violin making in Salt Lake City, Utah. She eventually returned to New Brunswick to attend the NB Craft School’s Fretted Instrument Making Course. She rounded out her studies with a one year apprenticeship with an Italian trained luthier in Montreal. She returned to New Brunswick in 1985 to start her own business, where she still lives and works today as a luthier, working for musicians across Canada and the United States.
