    Rain Stick Making

    Monday June 24, 2019

    10:00 am - 4:00 pm with a break for lunch
    Teacher: Barbara Bellchambers


    Class Description:  Have you ever listened to a rain stick?  
    Traditionally, rain sticks were used by native people of the south  during ceremonies at the time of spring planting. They were made of cactus, with the spines pushed inside the cactus, with stones or shells inserted inside.  We will make our rain stick from a snake  gourd, drilling the holes for spines made of wood.  You will have a choice of a variety of materials to put inside your rain stick to make the sound of rain.  You should finish making the rain stick.  You may have to finish the decorating later depending on the time.

    Teacher supplies: All materials except the prepared gourd for members.  All materials for non-members.
    Students supply:  Members will buy and prepare an appropriate gourd in advance of the class. Gourds will be prepared for non-members.
    Food vendors are located in The Square or bring a bag lunch!

    Artisans Centre Member Fee:  $ 40 (includes all materials except gourd)

    Guest Fee: $60 (includes all materials including prepared gourd)
