The drums we make are handdrums of North American design, but we do use more modern tools than the native people did.
The drums are made from wood and rawhide and will be about 16 – 18” in diameter and about 2” deep, with drumskin on the one side and a handle on the other side. You will get the opportunity to decorate the drum during the workshop.

If you have special requirements tell us in advance and we will see if it will be possible to follow your wish.

At the workshop we will start thinning the raw boards, make them circular (almost) and then mount the drumskin. Having completed the drums we will work shamanically/spiritually with our new drums.
Normally we use reindeer skin for the drums, but other types are sometimes available at extra cost. Anyway we will have a lot to do, and we will have a lot of fun.

Wear working outfit and bring a blanket or 2 for the meditative work.

Hope to see you on this workshop
