Bodhrán making with Michael Vignoles
On Monday and Tuesday we got the opportunity to make our own Bodhrán with Michael Vignoles. Michael made the base of the bodhráns and had them ready for us so that all we had to do was sand, varnish and apply the goat's skin!! It was dusty work and very noisy for Mr Connelly next door because we were sanding and tapping away all day!!
The hardest part was putting on the skin tight enough and tacking thumb tacks and ribbon around the edge to keep the skin in place. The next day after it had dried, we decorated the bodhrán with designs of our choice!
Thank you so much Michael for coming all the way from Galway to help us make our own bodhrán and for teaching us the basic skill of playing the bodhrán!
