Wind Chime Classes
This is a series of classes on how to determine and fabricate a six tube set of wind chimes based upon the Pentatonic Scale. (Look at the set hanging in the Machine Shop.) I did an engineering analysis of how and why wind chimes function. The construction of them is based upon my analysis. This is a demonstration class only. If more than one part is needed only one will be demoed in the class. I will make the remainder out of class. There will be not enough time for each person to make a set of their own chimes. If a person desires to make a set I will gladly assist them at a later date.
Class cost is $30 for Bodgery members. (I will teach the class for free as the funds will be donated to the Bodgey.) Class will be held at 1PM on each of the days listed below. Class size will be limited to 15. Copies of the software used for the chime calculation will be provided. Bring a data stick/thumb drive to first class to get your copy.
1 Oct. Chime theory and instruction on how to use spread sheet. Selection of desired chord and individual notes if you have tubes. Obtaining tubes and determining what chimes can be made. (will be held in the classroom)
9 Oct. Cutting tubes to length and drilling holes for hanging pins. Making of hanger pins and striker selection.
16 Oct. Top Hanger selection and fabrication.
23 Oct. Hanging of the tubes and striker. Sail fabrication. Clean-up.
Note: These day classes are estimates on my part of the time needed. A fifth class may be needed depending how fast things are accomplished in the previous classes.
