Sustainable Stringed Instruments for Families
Start strumming! Build your own sustainable stringed instrument by repurposing what you already have (ahem, some might call it junk) into a tool for joyful noise-making. By constructing simple instruments out of commonly found objects, we will explore recycling, lutherie (making stringed instruments), and community by working together and playing together. There will be a variety of levels of difficulty to choose from so that adults and children of many ages can experience success in making a stringed instrument.
Parents are welcome to bring one child age 7+ and build one project together for a single tuition, or children ages 12+ may attend on their own.
You will need the following tools for this class:
- carving knife
Feel free to bring your favorite tools and whatever materials you might feel appropriate for this course.
