An apprenticeship programme to become a Sounding Bowl maker runs from our workshop.

Sounding Bowls has space for one new apprentice in 2017

Internationally recognised as the first musical instrument to have strings inside the resonant space. Copyrights held by Tobias Kaye mean you will have a protected market for your work once trained.

Could you make one of these?


Due to the increase in demand for Sounding Bowls internationally, the company now has an opening for an apprentice. There are no restrictions in terms of applicants, other than a desire to learn and a willingness to be taught.

All our pieces are amongst the highest quality wood turning anywhere in the world and the level of concentration and application that goes into each bowl, therefore, is of the highest order so the critical factor will be not just the ability to master the most demanding techniques (for instance the base of our bowls is the thickness of a matchstick) … but also the ability to master your own self.

The initial apprenticeship will be determined by the reaching the exacting standards required and it is anticipated that this will be in the region of one year before you are able to make a Sounding Bowl of reasonable quality.

There will be an expectation of the successful candidate then becoming a full time employee of Sounding Bowls where they can expect a long career of the utmost satisfaction, due to not just our increase in demand but because we are the sole providers of these exceptional instruments due to copyright and patent protection.

Please send a CV or if you prefer, email to arrange for an initial telephone appointment with Tobias Kaye. Successful applicants will then be expected to attend an interview process.
