Junk Workshop

Junk Workshop

Recommended for ages 6 - 11 years


Create your own instrument and join the ‘Junk Orchestra’!

Led by Thea Rossen, percussionist and director of Ad Lib Collective, everyone will get involved and use their imagination and creativity to turn trash into treasure – creating unique instruments out of ‘junk’ and other recycled items.

Not only will you have the chance to create (and keep!) an instrument, but the chance to perform and compose a unique piece of music with the rest of the group, becoming part of the Junk Orchestra.

While everything required will be provided in the workshop, participants are encouraged to bring interesting objects from home such as bottles, tins, pans and anything else which can shake, rattle or roll and create an inspiring sound – but please, no actual instruments! Come with ideas, leave with inspiration to continue making music at home with the instruments you create.
