The Utterly Butterly Ukulele Project (TUB-Ukulele Project, TUBUP) – music and junk instrument making workshops that will amaze and amuse you, and help you learn a lot while having fun!

At our workshops we bring everything you need to make your own TUB-Ukulele, teach you how to play a repertoire of songs, and then do an end of day performance with the assembled TUB-Uke orchestra and the Utterly Butterly Band. More than 24,000 TUB-Ukes have been made so far!

The TUB-Ukes are constructed from an Utterly Butterly tub, a piece of wood and fishing line for strings. To everyone’s amusement and amazement, the TUB-Uke is fully functional and tuneable and is played the same as any conventional ukulele.
