uguna flutes - flute making workshop
Unfortunately, health problems
intervened in May of 2013 that will prevent me
from spending two long days in the workshop running
a complete, intensive course for
the foreseeable future. However, if you are reasonably
local to mid-west Devon, I'd be only too happy to pass
several hours discussing and explaining flute making and
the techniques involved, at no cost to the participant.
I've left the workshop description intact as I hope to
resume this activity in the future.
I run a two-day workshop on flute making. Participants start by selcting an untouched cedar-wood blank and carry out all the work necessary to make their own individual flute, hand carving the instrument in the traditional way. The cost of 180 pounds per person covers all tuition and materials over the two days. Participants will also receive an uguna flutes Song Book CD. The steps include:
While it would be possible to have
a couple of attendees on a workshop, I prefer working
one-to-one. Some level of woodworking skill is obviously
useful but is not essential. In the event of there being
any spare time it will be spent playing flutes and
finding out about traditional native american music.
