In the workshop, cello making continues ...

Notification came this week that I made it through to the final round for the Churchill Fellowship. The application is now making its way to Canberra to compete against all the other applicants from across the nation. I am very happy to have made it this far and also, that my nervous presentation in the interview made some sense to the panel.

This week saw travel south to the capital for an interview for a Churchill Fellowship. It was nerve-wracking, to say the least. This luthier is more comfortable in a workshop behind a plane than making public presentations, but did his best and took the double bass along for moral support. The applicants had to make a ten minute presentation to a panel of 9 people around a boardroom table, after which they are peppered with questions. The reception by the panel was quite warm and most of the questions they fired had been anticipated but who knows? Great references and the double bass hopefully gave me an edge.
