Instrument Building Workshop - Native American Flute

WNF

First workshops are planned for summer/fall 2016. 

Have you ever heard the haunting tones of a Native American Flute and wanted one of your own?
Now you can not only own one, you can build it yourself.  We do the hard bits and you do the assembly, finish, and ornamentation with our guidance. Even if you think you are all thumbs, you can, with a little help from us, build a beautiful Native American Flute that you will play with joy. They are not hard to play and you will soon be playing simple tunes and melodies.

You will have a choice of pitch, woods used, totem animal, and the finish and ornamentation. The cost of the workshop will depend on the materials chosen.

Please contact us for more details and information.
