Native American Style Flute Building Workshop- Winter 2019
During this workshop you will be learning how to make your own Native American style flute. We will start with a pre-drilled square flute blank, then we will be making the sound hole (splitting edge) and channel, rounding the blank, carving a totem, adjusting the key, adding the holes and tuning each, decorating the flutes, and discussing the history, culture, and playing techniques. This class usually takes around 6 hours to complete, and you will be birthing your own custom flute by the end of the class.
We try to refrain from using any power tools in this process. Please be prepared to use files, hand drills, sand paper and fire to create your flute.
