RATTLE MAKING




Description:

The subtle yet present sound of the rattle seduces our senses in a way no other instruments can. From a soft shuffling sound to a crispier calling, the rattle has been a long time instrument that continues to make it’s way even in modern music. Find out what enchantment it holds and find your own signature sound.

The workshop:

The workshop begins with smudging followed by an introduction round. I will then share about the medicines used to create the rattles. We will follow with the creation of the rattles. The day closes with a closing circle. This is a 2 days workshop since the rattles require a few days to dry. The second visit must be spaced to allow drying. All materials are provided.
