Nils Pokel: Make a bamboo didgeridoo
Make a bamboo didgeridoo…and learn how to play it!
This hands-on, all-ages workshop will take about 25 participants through building a bamboo didgeridoo, from choosing the right didge through to making a custom mouthpiece from natural beeswax.
Once we all have a nice didge ready to go we'll go through the basics of playing, learning to create our first sounds, playing overtones, and adding some 'special effects' . Time and skills permitting we will also practise circular breathing and get everyone on their way to becoming an amazing didge player.
All materials are provided for 25 didges. Feel free to bring your own didge to the second part of the workshop if you just want some tips on your playing.
