Panpipe making workshops

Panpipe Making Workshops

Make a diatonic panpipe with eight notes in a morning following instructions from the workshop leader. This workshop is suitable for students in Years 4 to 6.

A class of up to 30 students work in groups of  3 or 4 to make a set of panpipes.

The students will use PVC tubing, rotary tube cutters, sandpaper, scissors, electrical tape, gaffer tape and cardboard to make the instrument. I request that there is a class teacher and TA present and taking part for this workshop.

All materials and tools are provided.

Each workshop lasts up to 2 hours. So one class can have a morning workshop and another class can have a workshop in the afternoon.

Cost £190 for a full morning or afternoon with one class of 30.
