From time to time I have workshops on Pipemaking.  Here are some Fotos from a recent workshop.  We were making bamboo pipes and bamboo geometrical models.

Once a pipe has been made the student "burns" decorations onto it.

The burning tool is useful for cleaning up the slintery edges to the finger holes.

This student had little burning on her pipe but finished the surface beautifully.

A student produce holds up her beautifully made pipe.

[Sorry about the legs and pipe lineup.]

We also made models of platonic solids.  It starts with splitting bamboo.

Once enough slivers of bamboo have been collected, a start can be made with gluing.  We used a hot glue gun.  You have to be very careful if you want a precise result.

Here a portion of an ICOSAHEDRON is being put together.

The students indicated that they had enjoyed the experience.  Each of the completed pipes [that I saw] had a beautiful sound.  So I enjoyed the experience.

Cheers, Chris the pipe-maker.
