Fetish Blocks, Inlay and Finishing
This 1 day class complements our Making of the Native American Flute class. The fetish block or Totem that sits on top of the flute has long been a symbol of Native American Tribes in the design and building of the Native American Flute (NAF). We will spend time in the morning creating our flute fetish design, and looking at various inlay techniques. Then we will begin carving and shaping our fetish block, and review techniques for wrapping and securing the fetish blocks to our flutes. Finally we will spend some time at the end of the day talking about various methods of finishing, sealing and proper care and maintenance of the Native American Flute.
