120. Bongo drums

As an adult you so rarely get to create anything that's sole purpose is fun. So when I saw a class advertised at Ikea where we would get to make our own bongo drums i signed up instantly.


With Saul Eisenberg

Saul is a talented guy. He makes instruments out of junk and plays them with his band The Junk Orchestra.


It was so simple to do. We just had to stretch packing cellophane over cardboard tubes, keeping the tension strong, to create a skin. We then added a layer of clear tape to make the sound sharper and decorated with papers.

We then jammed for a bit with our new noise makers.

See if your local Ikea offers classes here.
