Michel Donadey started out in luthiery in 1972 at the age of 19. He began an apprenticeship with Roger Buro and was supported by A. Carbonell. He also worked for a while with André Sakelaridès. Later he learned guitar making techniques from luthiers and workshops in Spain. In 1978 he supervised a training course for instrument making at St. Maxim which led to the formation of a workers cooperative company in 1979 which ran for 5 years. In 1986 he set up his own workshop in Marseille where he has worked ever since.
