Reed Tuck Shop
There will also be a Reed Tuck Shop sponsored by Jim Ewen of the Winnipeg Symphony. You will be able to purchase cane (gouged only, gouged and shaped only or gouged, shaped and profiled) and wire. Some tools may also be available for purchase at the Reed Tuck Shop.
Bring money to purchase reed cane if you do not have any.
Prices in 2018 were : $4/piece for gouged cane, $5/piece for gouged and shaped cane, $6/piece for gouged, shaped and profiled cane. How much cane you will need depends on how ambitious you are and how many reeds you make. You can also purchase cane to take home. Reed wire will also be available at $1/metre.
All proceeds from the sales at the Reed Tuck Shop go towards the growth of the Paul Buttemer Memorial Scholarship Fund.
