Walnut trees originate from Gaul, a region of Western Europe that includes present day Belgium, my homeland. Needless to say I have a special relation to this tree. I love using it for making flutes.
Native tribes see the Walnut as a symbol for clarity and focus, gathering of energy, and a beginning of new projects.
The wood of the walnut tree has a tight grain and can be shaped and polished very easily, making it fit for any type of woodcraft. Walnut has an average density (it’s not too soft, neither hard as rock), so as a flute it is fit for any type of key – low and high. Its timbre is clear and present.
Walnut also is an exceptionally beautiful wood. It can vary from light to very dark (black walnut), with the most exquisite natural drawings adorning it.
Every flute includes a 1-hour personal workshop. For all practical purposes this workshop is held online, using the platform of your preference: Zoom, Skype, Whatsapp…
