12.08.19 // Intensive: Making the Sacred Drum with Luke McLaughlin // 4:30-8p
Drums have been a part of our human ancestry for thousands of years across all cultures. They remind us of our right to speak our truth, to be bold, and be heard. In this one day class, we will be using locally sourced, rawhide deer skin and maple drum frames to construct our own sacred hand drum. If we have time, we will be creating a drum beater and decorating our drums with natural pigments. This drum will be perfect for ceremony purposes as well as a beautiful piece of art for your home. Rawhide and wood included with purchase of ticket.
$125, includes all materials
