Instruments of Faith
Sunday, October 20 - Tuesday, October 22, Camp Vermilion
This weekend you are invited to craft your own hand-built instrument, learn about its history, and gather for conversations about faith, God, and life. You do not need to be able to play the instrument in order to enjoy creating one! Choose from one of three instruments - a Cigar Box Ukulele, a Hognose Psaltry, or a 4-String Banjo. Our instructor will guide you step by step, from pieces to a working instrument!
Cost for the retreat is $125, which covers meals and lodging. Each instrument kit is an additional charge, ranging from $49-$300. Let us know which instrument you would like to make when you register!
Calling All Crafters!
