Meditative Chiming with Katie Shlon, $75
Roughly two hours will be devoted to students making their own chimes! We will spend the first 30 minutes & last 30 minutes of this workshop doing listening exercises to concentrate our awareness on the conceptual meaning of the sound of these objects, in conversation with the wind, birds, and whatever else is sounding near the Mill. Because reuse is an important element of the workshop, students would be encouraged to bring supplies for instrument making. Ideas for chimes: scraps of wood, dowels, ceramic shards, beads, various brass and copper cups and pipes, and whatever else seems to have potential for exploration. The artist will also have some additional objects available for exploration. The artist will supply pairs of scissors and/or wire cutters, a roll of fishing line, and several yards of rope for construction.
