Kees Van Hemert -Gold Cello/Classic/Baroque

Kees van Hemert received initial training at the workshop of Matthijs de Jong and worked as a bowmaker for the internationally recognised firm of Bouman’s, before opening his own successful establishment in Den Haag (renowned for its Royal Conservatorium with its world famous department of early music). Following a career as an artist, holding major exhibitions and lecturing in The Netherlands, and for a time in Australia, Kees van Hemert combines his visual expertise with superb practical skills, creating bows which are as functionally finely balanced as they are aesthetically pleasing – each one being an individual, one-off work of art in itself. Kees van Hemert won The City of Perth Crafts Award for Excellence for the outstanding quality of his bows, and was recently honoured with membership in The Netherlands Association of Violin Makers and Bow Makers.
