Q: How did you learn to make these?


A: Mostly good old fashioned trial and error over the past 8 years. Also, bassoon reed making, though completely different, taught me how to use an array of tools towards a musical end.

Q: Can they really stand up on their own?


A: Yes, they are made to stand up on their own on a smooth level surface. On carpet and less hard surfaces, they should lean against something sturdy. They are top-heavy once flipped and gradually get a lower center of gravity as it rains. In order to prevent an accidental fall, ensure the rainstick is well-balanced at all times.

Q: Can I eat the amaranth/poppy seeds contained in the rainstick? You say they’re organic.


A: Do not eat any of the contents of the rainsticks. While the food product was produced organically, the rainstick building process has rendered them not food safe.
