This workshop will teach you how to tie a drum from materials obtained in the old ways. The hides are harvested and scraped by hand using only a blade. Day one will involve instructions on assembling the traditional hand drum. Day two will involve teachings on how to care for the drum and carry it in a traditional way.

Scott Butt Bio: I was involved with the Mi’Kmaq culture from childhood, learning the living culture from my family out on the land. I began carving in my early twenties after picking up a stick while on a fishing trip and turning it into a staff sitting around a campfire that night. Since then I have spent the last twenty five years learning as much as possible about my Mi’Kmaq culture. I make my living from my carving, rustic furniture and tradition objects. I create many different items and have been building drums for twenty years now. My drums as with most of my work is built from materials I collect from the land and prepare by hand. I believe our old ways are best preserved by doing and sharing our knowledge with others.
