Sly Arts present opportunities for students to make music, film and audio art by extending arts provision. Workshops allow participants to develop interpersonal skills alongside artistic, technical and technological abilities. Workshops can be designed to suit specific needs and can also address issues like bullying, or health.
Make your own Ukulele! from recyclable materials, learn how to play it and take part in a live performance. The Utterly Butterly Ukulele project creates ukuleles from spread tubs, fishing line, wood and screw eyes. The workshop is suitable for all ages and to the amusement and amazement of all participants, the Tub-Uke sounds authentic, and is very playable.
Ukulele workshops can be stand alone, full or half day in a school or community environment or can be run as part of a series of workshops in a geographical area over several days, where everybody comes together for a massed Ukulele jam session and performance. In a 1 day event 60 pupils can each make a Ukulele to play and keep. The workshops can take place anywhere, including schools (yrs 3 - 12) libraries, community halls and all materials are provided.
