There is something really lovely about demonstrating something to people that is so seasonal, simple, ancient, accessible and fun! If you would like to book me for an event please get in touch, I would love to hear from you.
One occasion last year that really sums it up; A man was watching me make whistles, it reminded him of a half forgotten childhood memory of his father teaching him how to make a May Whistle. Since then he has gone and tought his own young son how to make them.
Here are some of the events where I can be found demonstrating whistle making in 2013:
