"Shake It Up' Make a Traditional Rawhide Rattle
Rattles are used by many cultures as musical instruments, toys, celebratory and ceremonial tools. We will examine a wide variety of rattles from the Americas including their uses in healing and social ceremonies as you prepare and make your own. This is a hands-on workshop, working with rawhide, wood handles, sand, water and stones. This will be a fun session that any age and skill level can enjoy. The participant will create an individual item that can become a tool of self discovery.
