Drum Birthing

2018/04/07 @ 9:30 am - 6:00 pm

Give birth to your own shamanic frame drum in sacred ceremony. Registration deadline is March 20.

We will gather on Saturday evening (6:30-8:30pm) to journey to the spirit of your new drum to learn its name and purpose and prepare the hoop. The hides will then soak overnight. We will meet again Sunday morning for a ritual by the river and then spend the day pulling hides and creating mallets (9:30am-6pm). Choose your rawhide from either Horse, Elk, or Deer (more info on hide choices on registration), the hoops are Maple.

The cost for all materials for a 16″ drum with mallet is $150, payable by the registration deadline so the hides can be ordered, and is non-refundable. The workshop fee of $150 covers instruction and ceremonies for a total of $300.
