Native American Style Flute Making
Take a journey in the crafting of a Native American Style Flute and create an instrument as unique and personal as you are. One that carries with it all of the flavors, textures, and tones that are as multifaceted as your own personality. Then be amazed at the incredible sound it makes!
Making a Native American style flute is a personal and sometimes sacred endeavor, as each flute is carefully crafted with individual intonations. Students will start by choosing a piece of common or exotic wood to craft their flute. Each wood type carries with it, it’s own unique signature and voice. Students then learn how to bore, shape, sand, and finish a flute. Techniques will also be taught to adorn the instrument with wood burning, carvings, paints, stains, and more to make it uniquely personalized. This workshop is a great experience for the instructor and student who collaborate on a design and work side-by-side to create an artistic flute that can be handed down for generations.
