What to bring | Please bring your instrument. For adjustment-only courses we suggest you bring some of your own reeds. Please also bring any reed making tools you might have; ideally a reed knife, cutting blocks, plaque and mandrel. If you don’t own these please email us and we will help you source them. You are also welcome to bring any semi-finished reeds or blanks they have made to work on together.
You will need to wear workshop appropriate clothing. Aprons and overalls are available. Remember glasses if you need them, the work involves looking at small details. If you have any tools of your own, then please bring, making sure they are marked or labelled.
Please specify whether you wish to make modern, cor anglais or baroque reeds when booking, so we can supply the appropriate materials and tools.
