Please check the event website before attending, to verify the details and make sure there's no change.
May 26, 2019 @ 11:00 am
Create this beautiful drum, crafted from a wooden hoop and lacing with the symbol of a medicine wheel. The workshop will include guiding the creation and learning how to care for and use the drum in healing and cleansing practices.
We will have the opportunity to perform our Blessing Ceremony in a very special natural space. Our mid-day break will include a visit with a live Raptor!
The drum is a part of native heritage from tribal cultures all over the world. This single sided drum is crafted using a wooden hoop or frame and a stretched rawhide head and lacing. Covered on only one side, the back is laced to form the symbol of a medicine wheel with the four cardinal directions that also serve as a hand hold. Great for drumming circles and meditation!
In this workshop you will be supplied everything you need to create your own frame drum and accompanying beater.
