With Melina Payne
Mon 11 Mar 2024 10:30AM - 12:00PM
Join Homestead Galleries Curator & Exhibitions Manager Melina for a intimate tour of our current exhibitions.
Two workshop sessions aimed at youngsters and adults, devoted to the magical world of invented, found and homemade musical instruments. Hosted by Phil Dadson (left) and Adrian Croucher (mid-right), of NZ’s legendary From Scratch group, the workshops will introduce a wide range of DIY instrument ideas for exploration and development.
Participants will be introduced to an inspiring mix of instrument ideas and basic acoustic principles, with a range of surprising and sometimes familiar sound-making materials and sonic objects. Families welcome.
Designed essentially for youngsters, participants will be guided through the making of one or more simple DIY instruments demonstrated in Workshop#1. They will also have the opportunity to play together as a group and take one or more completed instruments away with them.
