BRAHM: Shakere African Instrument Making Workshop

August 13 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

$75 – $90

Adults, teens, or children accompanied by an adult

We will prepare a gourd, paint or etch on the gourd, string the beaded skirt around it and learn one rhythm & song on the instrument. Beads, wooden, ceramic, and pony plastic beads will be used. Other objects like seashells may be woven in -however, if they are breakable the instrument may become more a work of art than a playable instrument.   African shekeres may use nut shells, seashells or hard seeds in the design. Bead colors are an individual choice.

If participants do not complete the instrument in one session it is possible to continue to work on it at home.
