You may remember some time ago that I posted the first in a series of posts which talk about how I make these wonderful instruments, where I talked about shaping the flute. Today I’m going to show you something of how to make the basic body of the flute – which is actually one of […]
I’ve just booked a couple of events for later this year; I look forward to seeing you there! First of all, I’ll be in the Craft Market at Leeds Waterfront Festival on Saturday 28th June – of course I’ll only be a very small part of the attractions but please do try to drop by! Secondly, […]
