Our Junk Instrument Making workshop uses everyday items such as cups, straws and pipes to teach children how instruments work and why they make different sounds. The children make all kinds of instruments from drums to hose pipe horns, shakers to lollystick harmonicas.
By the end of the workshop, all the children come together and create music on their own instruments which they can take home, much to the annoyance of some parents I'm sure!
We supply all the materials needed for the workshop. All we ask for are some tables and scissors for the children to use.
One of the best workshops we’ve ever done! Really fantastic workshop. Loved the pace, the amount of things squashed into the session and how easy but fun each instrument building activity was. Thank you

Absolutely brilliant! The kids had a great time making sounds, there was lots of laughter and the adults had fun too!
