Theatre Nemo Project

I'm Looking for Your Old Boxes & Tins

Timber & 'Bits' For A Major Project

I will be leading a series of workshops, in Glasgow, from February to May 2016, with Theatre Nemo, a company and charity established to highlight social issues, particularly mental health.
We are looking for tins and boxes to make instruments from. (30cm by 15cm by 5cm is ideal, but anything is useful), also planed hardwood timber, broken instrument parts like tuning pegs and fretwire...and anything else you can offer.
Please spread the word, and get in touch if I can collect anything in the Glasgow area.
Many thanks.



Here is the BATCAN - A canjo made from a cool, Batman 'Gadget tin. Fitted with a piezo pick-up, and (finally) completed with bat fret markers, 24 nickel frets, 4 chrome tuners, oak neck, mahogany fingerboard, bone nut and key bridge - Tuned GDAE

and here's a quick video clip from when it had dot markers
