21Attached are a couple of pictures fromthe reed-making classes held at theAustralian summer school that NPUkindly supported. One picture, as you see, isof some of the reeds made and in-progress.The class spent two afternoons making reeds,under the tutelage of Damien Kingston (frontleft in the reed-making photo) and myself (notin photo). We originally wanted AndrewFlint, as I said in my request, but a chance forhim to go overseas to do some studyintevened and he was unable to attend.I think some of the prospective reed-makerswere a bit surprised at how well a reed turnsout if you do it all right things and pay atten-tion to some necessary details. One of themwent home and straight away got himself setup to make reeds. I told him he as to make afew hundred to get the hang of it. I think hetook me literally and keeps sending me pho-tos of his latest reeds.Anyway, all in all, it was a very enjoyableweek of pipering. Depsite the weather: a cou-ple days over 40 degrees and some veryheavy rain to follow, which did some havoc toour carefully tuned dry-weather reeds? Notthat we are complaining about rain in this partof the world. Next year’s classes are alreadybooked out, bar one place.Thanks again and all the best,Patrick Lyons~ Report from Australia ~
