A small group of parents got together and did the template making. Now we're up to 5 workshops, 4 hours on a weekend, to finish the lyre.
|Brooke's lyre, Jake's lyre and Zeke's lyre - work in progess.|
Brooke's lyre has a dolphin with 'wave burning' on it and Jake's lyre has a shape which is symbolic of this painting that he did at school when he was in 6 years old, of baby in utero - Brenna.
Zeke just has to choose what picture/shape he would like for the sound box on his lyre.
I managed to do quite a bit of Brooke's lyre workshops, no workshops of Jake's but sanding at home and after exams, I hope to do some workshops for Zeke's lyre. It's pretty amazing to think that us average people can make a quality working musical instrument... certainly not something I ever thought I would do once in my life, let alone four times - as we still have lyre making for Quinn to come in a few years time!
