What is more awesome then having your very own beautiful frame drum? Creating it yourself! ♥
The drum is a part of all cultures all over the world. This single sided drum has 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 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 drum stick. While you are making your creations Valarie and Ian will teach you the care and feeding of your drum, as well as how to use them in healing and cleansing ceremonies.
We will begin with a Drum Journey to connect to the Heartbeat of the Drum, and then start the process of creating our drums and beaters. After creating the drum, we’ll celebrate its birth with a special ceremony. Birthing a drum is an intense process, one not easily forgotten.
This special workshop will be held at Churchville Nature Center outside in the “Lenape Village” - a beautiful setting! (inside the beautiful geothermal room in the Nature Center if it rains)
