DRUM MAKING




Description:

Drums are a powerful instrument and many continue to enjoy the sound of the drums. They have been used for such a long time and are found around the world. Used for ceremonies, storytelling, pow-wows, entertainment, they always capture an audience.

The workshop:

The workshop begins with smudging followed by an introduction round. I will share some teachings about the drum and song protocols. This is followed with the tying of the drum. We will sing a song to birth the drums with. The workshop ends with a closing circle. This is a recommended one day workshop. The drums will require time to dry. The artwork requires a second day and a full day is highly recommended.
