Clap Stick Making with Bobby Mercier

Clap Sticks are one of our original percussion instruments and are made from the Elderberry tree.  This video class takes you through the entire process: from identifying and selecting a good branch to singing with the final product.  Bobby Mercier explains and demonstrates the process.  Bobby includes historical processes and uses as well as “work smarter, not harder” steps using modern tools; allowing you to determine the best method for creating your clap stick.
