Artist Michelle Rosenberg will demonstrate how to make fipple-style whistles out of various objects including hairbrushes, carrots, tree branches, floorboards and chair legs. Materials will be included in this child-friendly workshop. If you have a wooden or sufficiently stiff non-toxic object you would like to turn into a whistle, please bring it.
Michelle Rosenberg is a New York based architect and artist. Her past projects have included embedding whistles into walls, turning litter into phonetic alphabets and making delicate sculptures out of used brooms that the New Yorker Magazine says “subverts half a dozen art-historical genres”.
No prerequisites. This is a 3 hour workshop. Tools and materials provided.
All ages. Children under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian. Guardian does not need to buy a ticket, unless they wish to take the workshop and make their own whistles.
