SOUNDING BOWLS – Playing with sound – Sunday 3rd November


Have you ever heard Tobias Kaye’s unique Sounding Bowls? They are each made from a particular wood, strung across their diameter. The combination of a beautifully turned and finished vessel and the finely tuned strings is really heavenly when played with awareness. In this workshop you will learn to play with simple musicality and benefit from the uplifting effects of these particular vibrations. http://www.hawkwoodcollege.co.uk/courses/Sounding_Bowls_Playing_with_Sound_November
