MUSICAL MARACAS

Ages 9+
NATALIE WIRSING

SORRY, THIS CLASS HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

Build a simple percussion instrument out of clay. 

Rattles are the only musical instrument found in every culture throughout the world. Students in this class will explore texture and handbuilding clay construction as they form percussive pods, or closed-pocket noise makers, inspired by natural shapes: seed pods, shells, gourds, rain-sticks, etc. Students will sculpt small beads that represent aspects their personalities or their favorite things and once closed inside their pod, only they will know what’s inside!
