"We will be constructing our flutes out of bamboo in this workshop. It’s a wonderful material that allows us to focus on the functional aspects of flute making. We will only be using hand tools such as carving knives, various types of files, sandpapers, and fire (torch). The workshop will be tailored to each person's level of experience, allowing you to flow at your own pace. It is my hope is that participants will finish with the confidence and inspiration to apply these same techniques to creating flutes of their own."
