The drum is a part of native heritage from tribal cultures all over the world.  This single sided drum is drafted using a wooden hoop or frame and a stretched rawhide head and lacing.  Covered on only one side, the back is laced to form the symbol of a medicine wheel with the four cardinal directions that also serve as a hand held.  Great for drumming circles and meditation!

In this workshop you will be supplied everything you need by Rainbows of Healing to create your own frame drum and accompanying beater.  While you are making your creations, Valerie and Ian will teach you the care and feeding of your drum, as well as how to use them in healing and cleaning ceremonies.

The class begins with a Drum Journey to connect to the Heartbeat of the Drum, and then start the process of creating our drums and beaters.  After creating the drum, we’ll celebrate its birth with a special ceremony.  Birthing a drum is an intense process, one not easily forgotten.
