In 2008 and 2009, thanks to funding from The Arts Council, Na Píobairí Uilleann filmed the working methods of four master pipe makers around the world, Cillian Ó Briain, David Quinn, Geoff Wooff and Andreas Rogge. The result was many hours of footage covering various aspects of making the instrument. The material has now been edited and uploaded to this section of Source.
