Mud to Music: Clay Flute Making Workshop
May 26, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$26 – $51
Musical instruments have helped us communicate and express ourselves since the beginning of human culture. Learning about the musical instruments of the ancient Americas and building and playing our own instruments helps us to awaken the memory of our connection to nature, cultivate presence through working with clay, and experience joy through sound and music-making.
In this hands-on workshop we will learn about musical instruments that have been made across Central and South America for thousands of years and learn to build our own working clay flutes. The workshop will return Dec 8th from 6-8 PM for a musical jam session where we’ll reflect on our learnings, explore the sound palettes of our instruments, and learn to express ourselves using our clay flutes.
All are welcome, and no previous experience with clay, instruments or music is necessary. This program is made possible by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council.
