You will be making your drum using Bison rawhide and a solid timber steam bent drum hoop made from Western Red Cedar. You will be guided through the process of assembing your drum, with various lacing style options. The workshop will include an opening and closing prayer, and a short meditation guided by drum and flute. We will also share an understanding about drums and the medicine behind the drums from various traditional beliefs.

All drum hoops are a minimum of 3” deep for added strength and resonance in the drum. All materials are prepared by Wolf Drums and Flutes ready for the workshop with honour and respect to the animal using sacred prayers. Please arrange child care if required.

Refreshments: Light refreshments are provided – tea, coffee, biscuits. BYO prepacked lunch. No cooking facilities.
