Catalog ID: N-VAB/4230

Katherine A. Mohr (b. 1984) is recognized as the first second-generation female bow maker in the United States. Daughter and student of celebrated bow maker Rodney Mohr (b. 1959), she works under the independent trade name "fille de Mohr," building, restoring, and repairing bows in conjunction with her parents' business Mohr & Mohr in Ashland, Ohio. In 2013, the Mohrs established the Learning Trade Secrets workshops, a year round training center for instrument and bow making, where she, her father, and other leading makers instruct prospective makers and restorers. On the board of the Violin Society Of America, Katherine Mohr currently serves as the Chair of the New Professionals and Social Media Committees, and attends the annual bow restoration workshops sponsored by the VSA.
