Making Shakers

Using hollowed and halved coconuts, build and assemble a maraca, experimenting with pellets and sound. While the epoxy sets the two halves together, students can enjoy applying paint and decorative scarf/flag to attach for more pizazz and/styling. Leave with your very own handmade percussion instrument.

Meet the Artist

A professional singer-songwriter from Southwestern Ontario, “The Universe Featuring Ray” writes and performs catchy, original songs on guitar, synths, pianos and vocals. Ray is constantly creating and dabbling in a variety of different mediums, fabricating stage props using a collection of recycled odds and ends, making stage costumes handcrafting the majority of her merchandise into one of a kind pieces – jewelry, pins, tie dye, screen printing, patches, incense holders, etc.
