Native Drum Making with Oz

We have a tentative date of Sunday, June 25th, 2017 from 10:00am - 5:00pm for the next Native Drum Making Class! 

This is the third year that Tribal Thunder has come to teach this beautiful and ancient technique, outside in the shade of the oak and maple trees. Last year we were graced with a Deer, who visited us throughout the day. We had never before had a deer come so close to us.

These teachings are woven into the very fabric of the drum and will be shared throughout the workshop. Building a drum is a way of unlocking, passing and carrying on that knowledge.Discover the Spiritual Teachings, Ancient Wisdom and Personal Growth the drum offers.

Grandmothers and granddaughters, fathers and sons, brothers and sisters can all make drums together.

“You’re not just building a drum, you’re building memories.”

Join the long line of drum makers, players and singers in your community and around the world.

All Materials are provided for you, including a handmade Cedar rim, various sandpapers, prepared skin, rawhide cording, all natural oil finish, and full instruction.

 The day begins with a smudging ceremony and concludes with a Drum Waking ceremony.

Please wear comfortable clothing and be prepared for dust while sanding. Smoothing the rough edges of the drum is akin to smoothing the rough edges of your own being.
