Note: Advancing and Beginning categories address your REEDMAKING skills only. You could be an Advanced player but a Beginning reedmaker, in other words. Beginners will start with learning to wind, basic knife skills, and reed construction steps. They will move more slowly. Advancing Reedmakers will begin by making reeds, and will evolve and improve their existing skills over the weekend as they work with me, my Guest Master Reedmaker, and each other.
