BUILD YOUR OWN TWO-KELELE
A perfect beginner instrument for all ages, the TWO-KELELE is easily made without power tools, cheaply, anywhere. And super easy to play. As you will see! Come build your own instrument at this 1 1/2 hour workshop. A fun project for children of all ages, though younger kids (6 and under) will probably need a parent to help out a little. Skills needed: listening & following directions, sawing cardboard with a pumpkin saw, tying knots, screwing screws, taping tape, & optional sawing & drilling wood. Donations will be taken to cover cost of materials.
