Drum Making Workshop
January 26th 11am-4pm
Making your own drum is a journey you will remember for the rest of your life.The outline for the workshop is simple. It will take about 4 hours to make your drum. You show up with a desire to have a drum of your own, or maybe it is just curiosity. That’s all you need, really! (And a rock for your drum handle, if you desire).
We start with a pre-constructed frame, deer hides, and a bucket of walnut stain. First you choose your frame, lay out the hides, and take a few moments of reflection to connect to this medium. After cutting the drum circles, I take you, one step at a time, through the rest of the process.
The looks on the faces when drums are completed is where it’s at for me. There are no words that can completely describe what it feels like to make your own drum. All you need is to be there and do it!
