Making your own drum is a journey that you will remember for the rest of your life.
The drum symbolizes the heartbeat of life, the heartbeat of community. It is not simply an art form, but a tool for cleansing, centering and focusing one’s intentions for health and happiness.
The outline for the workshop is simple- it will take about 4 hours to make your drum. You show up with a desire to have a drum of your own, or maybe it’s just curiosity. That’s all you need. Really!
We start with a preconstructed frame, deer hides and a bucket of walnut stain. First you choose your frame, lay out the hides and take a few moments of reflection to connect to this medium. After cutting out the drum circles, Instructor Wayne Manthey takes you, one step at a time, through the rest of the process.
“The looks of the faces when the drums are completed is where it’s at for me. There are no words that can completely describe what it feels like to make your own drum. All you need is, to be there and do it!” Wayne Manthey, Drummaker
