DRONE ORCHESTRA

Before more complicated resonant-bodied instruments came the bladder fiddle, commonly known in England as a drone. The drone comprises an inflated animal bladder secured to a large stick by a taut gut string. Bowing the string produces a resonant drone amplified by the bladder.  

Build your drone, rehearse, then perform at the festival in a 10-piece drone orchestra. 

Part one (making) – Saturday 16.10 – 17.40

Part two (rehearsal) – Sunday 18.00 – 18.50

Part three (performance) – Sunday 19.00 – 19.30

Advance sign-up. Limited to 10 people.
Book your place by emailing rosie@capsule.org.uk with ‘drone_orchestra’ in the title.
Please include your name & contact number for the festival weekend.

 

SAVE ME IN CLAY

Porcelain milagro necklace by CHW Ceramics

Save Me in Clay! will be a macabre ceramics workshop using stoneware clay, coloured slips and underglazes to make colourful body-part Milagros micro-sculptures as decorative hangings or to attach to jewellery.

Milagros are traditional symbolic charms (often body parts of animals) in Latin America culture that are historically worn or hung on walls and used to protect, cure or give thanks.
