WORKSHOP :

In this workshop we are focusing on the universal aspect of drums and drumming and especially on the sacredness of the act and commitment of giving voice to our deepest and best intensions. This workshop is open to people of all faiths and cultural backgrounds to gather together focusing our spiritual inten ons for the kind of world wish to build. We appreciate culture and tradi ons and are inspired by them, but are not claiming any one group’s cultural tradi ons.

Smudging Ceremony Medita on - Honoring the elements, water, air, fire, earth and the four direc ons. Calling the spirit of your drum, preparing the hoop, pulling the hides and crea ng your mallet. Se ng your intension - offering your drum in service.

Step by step drum making instructon

When you arrive for the workshop, the heads and lacings will have been soaked in ceremonial water. A er the ini al smudging ceremony, medita on and blessing, you will learn to weave the lacing on your drum in the four direc ons pa ern. This will be an opportunity for you to begin connec ng with the spirit of your drum.

Once we complete the drum lacing, we will then create the beater for your drum. If you have some special beads or feathers which you’d like to decorate your drum you may also bring them. The drum will take 2-3 days to fully dry before it can be played. The drum face can later be painted if desired.

We recommend playing your drum o en for maximum effect! Use it for healing, medita on, or to help empower social jus ce gatherings and marches! These drums are made with love and intended for service!
