We can also organise external workshops at your event, festival or private party anywhere in Europe. 

Are you considering buying a handpan?

It is a serious investment that should give you many years of joy. But the choice of maker and scale is vast and bewildering. How do you know what is good and what isn’t? Sadly, there are many online scams and badly-made instruments out there, and, because beginners often do not get the chance to try before they buy, they end up with a poor quality instrument that is unplayable and unsellable. Even if you are lucky enough to buy a top quality instrument, it might not ‘sing’ to you. And if you cannot connect to your handpan, you will miss out on this wonderful world.

First touch workshop

“You do not choose a handpan; the handpan chooses you.”

Have you just discovered this amazing instrument and want to know more?

The Handpan Academy provides you with an informed choice for your very first handpan. Register for this 1.5 hour workshop and you will have the opportunity to try many handpans from many renowned makers. You will be introduced to the fundamentals of the instrument and the basics of playing. If you fall in love, you’ll be pleased to know that they are all available for purchase. Discover a selection of our current steel temptresses.

The First touch workshops are held in informal, encouraging settings – either in our classroom or at many festivals throughout Europe. Simply choose a ticket-type and a date that suits you. You can come alone, bring a friend or a party up to 5.
