Hand Drum Making

About Hand Drum Making

The drum holds the heartbeat of Mother Earth. In this hands-on class, you will construct your own Anishinaabe hand drum and drum stick using materials supplied from the Earth: deer hide and wood. You will learn the history of the hand drum, how to construct and care for your drum and perhaps a song or two. Due to the strength required to tighten the drum, this class is recommended for ages 16 and over.
For ages 16+
All day workshop: 9:30am start (Please bring a lunch)
