Description
Violinmaker/musician David Prentice and artist Susette Godin moved from Toronto and bought the former home of the Flesherton Advance at 17 Collingwood St. in 1988. Here they have brought up their two sons Jordan and Michel. At times using wood from the soil of Grey County Prentice has made violins and violas that have found their way into the hands of musicians around the world. A building originally made for a tailor and his family has been perfectly suited to its present use with studio space in the storefront for both Prentice and Godin and living area above. As with many others the ongoing changes to the building became a part of life.
