  • Rin Gong

    July 14, 2018  10:00 am - 4:00 pm
    Littleton Studio School, 4053, 21 Mill St, Littleton, NH 03561, USA

    Ring a rin to mark the beginning or end of your day, your meditation practice, or just because it sounds lovely. During this class you will create a small hammered brass rin gong. Our class will begin with a ring of a rin, a 5 minute meditation, followed by the initial “sinking” (a forming technique) of the rin. We will continue to anneal (soften) and hammer (harden) until the proper shape and sound is achieved. Each student will create one brass rin, and, if time allows, a hand hammered metal mallet.

    Wooden mallets and cushions are available for purchase.

    No experience necessary, but is helpful. Many hours of hammering are required, not best for those with shoulder or hand issues.

    Estimated materials $15

  • Handheld Chime

    August 10, 2018  10:00 am - 4:00 pm

    A gentle shake to this chime will make a beautiful and gentle sound. During this class you will create a 5 or 7 bell handheld chime. Our class will begin with a ring of a chime, a 5 minute meditation, followed by the initial “sinking” (a forming technique) of the first bell. We will continue to anneal (soften) and hammer (harden) until the proper shape and sound is achieved for each bell. Once completed students will drill, finish and hang the bells from leather cord on a tree branch.

    Bring your own tree limb if you have one (ask Jean about the required shape), or they will be available.

    No experience necessary, but is helpful. Many hours of hammering are required, not best for those with shoulder or hand issues.

    Estimated materials: $20
