Drum Making Workshop 


Drums are a part of native traditions from cultures all over the world.  In this workshop you’ll make a single head drum that is crafted using a wooden frame, rawhide and lacing. The back is laced to form the symbol of a medicine wheel with the four cardinal directions that also serves as a hand hold. Additionally during the class Rodrigo will teach you how to bless & care for your drum so it can be used as a sound healing

tool in the Shamanic Tradition. 


Shamanic drums have been used in healing for thousands
of years. To this day, Healers from around the world
continue to use drums in their healing practices. In  its
simplest form, the drum's vibration is used to clear
energy from an individual or place.

This is a unique opportunity to make your own drum. They make wonderful, one of a kind gifts.
