Drum Making Workshop

Making a drun is an empowering journey to discover the magic and rhythms of the universe and those that live in side of you. We are star stuff. In many cultures a drum is a skin stretched over a frame playing the song of the universe. In those same cultures the definition of a human is the same. We seek connections and communicate with patterns and rhythms. When you commit to making a drum you join the circle of many generations before you that have heard the call and answer the path to create a drum.
This worship is 3 days starting the evening of May 28th and ending May30th in the afternoon. We will move through ceremony and the creative process. You will learn about the materials, the symbolism of the drum, the animal skin, frame and all the connections that create the sacredness of what a drum is and how to use it.

This in person workshop will be limited to 4 people who have been vaccinated for Covid 19. Pre-registration is required.

I work directly with sources to aquire hides and frames that are ethically produced. Currently the hides available for this drum making course are: Elk and Deer. The frames are also sourced from fallen trees. This year the woods available are maple and ash.

We will make 16 inch drums. This size will give a wide variety of sound and voice to your drum. (If you would like to make a larger drum there will be an extra fee of $60 for “18 or $80 for a 20” Once you have registered you can request the larger size.)

To reserve your place you will need to register by May 15th, 2021. Once you have registered you will receive a welcome letter and options to choose for your size, hide and frame.

After you have registered you will recieve an email with your options for hide and frame as well as instructions for starting your sacred journey to make your drum.
