Yes! Boomerangs used in our workshops are made from lightweight foam and have a very small throwing circle (approximately 2m) and run no risk of injury or damage when thrown. The boomerangs made by pupils in the workshops are also very lightweight, constructed with ordinary twin wall cardboard.
We reccommend using a hall, gym, or similar larger area when throwing either the foam or cardboard boomerangs. If the weather fine with little wind, then a playground, sports field etc can be utilised.
A number of wooden boomerangs are brought along for show purposes only - they are NOT thrown by anyone.
Yes - every pupil is provided with a plastic didgeridoo to learn with - they are not shared between students. All didgeridoos are washed between workshops and each person in everygroup is given an anti-bacterial wipe (supplied) to clean the mouthpiece before and after use.
A number of wooden and other types (Agave, plastic and fibreglass etc.) of didgeridoos are shown and demonstrated during the wrokshops, however, attendees are asked not to try and play them.
Based in Worthing, West Sussex, Ididgeridoo holds workshops throughout the UK.
We try to reduce costs where possible, for example by organising several workshops in a particular area close together, thus reducing the cost of travel.
The smallest group is one to one tuition through to (normally) around 30 students. Although larger groups can be accommodated, it does significantly impact on time throughout the workshop. Where there are large numbers of pupils it is suggested to hold several workshops with fewer numbers to give the best balance.
From 4 years to adults. The content of the workshops are adapted to suit the age and ability of the group(s).
Yes, enhnanced disclosure, available on request and a copy always taken to every workshop.
Workshops are adapted to suit the time available to the school, with a full days workshop being a days work, regardless of the quantity of groups during the day.
Workshops can be held for one class or group for a whole day or longer, alternatively, it may be that the day comprise of several workshops. We aim to deliver what you need and work to those requirements.
