What's Included in Each Workshop

  • Guidence from professional drum makers
  • One free leather head drum beater - leather colours vary
  • Instructions for care specific to our drums
  • Lifetime written guarantee on materials valid world wide
All our drum making workshops involve a short ceremony consisting of an opening prayer, connection meditation and closing prayer. We spend time to teach you about the medicine behind the drum so you have an understanding of what you are making from our perspective as it was taught to us by an elder.

Our workshops provide you with a unique opportunity to make a quality Native style medicine drum with an experienced drum maker.

General Information

What to Bring?
A packed lunch as cooking facilities may not be available. Tea and coffee is usually provided for. When bookings have closed for a specific workshop, you will be emailed with an information leaflet containing further details. We will also email you a week prior to the workshop.

Duration of workshop?
All drum making workshops run by us are completed within one day starting at 9am (unless stated otherwise). Finishing times can vary depending on numbers but usually between 4pm-6pm if not earlier.

What materials are used in the drums?
The hoops are made from solid steambent timber. We DON'T use plywood. The face and lacing for the drums are genuine rawhide which is processed and prepared by us. We DON'T use pickled hide. Traditional prayers are used in the preparation of both hoops and rawhide. The species of rawhide selected is specific to each workshop and is based on availability. We will not mix hides. All our rawhide are processed the natural way (without chemicals).
