Create Your Own Baschet Instruments at Home

This fun activity from musician Jackie Maguire will show children aged 7+ how to create their own musical instruments from glasses, pots, pans and other objects you can find at home.

The Baschet Sound Structures are intriguing musical sculptures designed and made by two artist brothers from France. The Ark was planning to bring these fun and unusual instruments to Dublin over Easter.

Even though sadly that couldn’t happen in the end, musician Jackie Maguire has come up with these fun activities that you can do at home. You can make your own simple instruments inspired by the Baschet sculptures and then create your own music with them!

We would love to see and hear the results so do send us in your photos or recordings by email at or tag us on social media @TheArkDublin using the #TheArkAtHome.
