Drum Making Workshop with Wayne Manthey

$80.00

Join us in making your own drum! Here’s the description from Wayne:

“Making personal frame drums is a journey that is individually and spiritually meaningful.  Teaching drum making classes involves storytelling and introspection.  The drum symbolizes the heartbeat of life, the heartbeat of community.  It is not simply an art form, but a tool for cleansing, centering and focusing one’s intentions for health and happiness.

Drums teach responsibility.  Making them is an honor, a meditation, and continue to reveal lessons for me as well.”

WHEN: Saturday, June 19th from 12-4

WHERE: Downstairs of Wellness N Soul

COST: $150 for a 13” OR $170 for a 16″

REGISTER: An $80 deposit is required to hold your spot

“MAKING YOUR OWN DRUM IS A JOURNEY THAT YOU WILL REMEMBER FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

THE OUTLINE FOR THE WORKSHOP IS SIMPLE.

  IT WILL TAKE ABOUT 4 HOURS TO MAKE YOUR DRUM.

YOU SHOW UP WITH A DESIRE TO HAVE A DRUM OF YOUR OWN, OR, MAYBE IT IS JUST CURIOSITY.  THAT’S ALL YOU NEED, REALLY!

WE START WITH A PRE-CONSTRUCTED FRAME, DEER HIDES, AND A BUCKET OF WALNUT STAIN.

FIRST, YOU CHOOSE YOUR FRAME, LAY OUT THE HIDES, AND TAKE A FEW MOMENTS OF REFLECTION TO CONNECT TO THIS MEDIUM.

AFTER CUTTING OUT THE DRUM CIRCLES, I TAKE YOU, ONE STEP AT A TIME, THROUGH THE REST OF THE PROCESS.

THE LOOKS ON THE FACES WHEN THE DRUMS ARE COMPLETED IS WHERE IT’S AT FOR ME.  THERE ARE NO WORDS THAT CAN COMPLETELY DESCRIBE WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO MAKE YOUR OWN DRUM.

ALL YOU NEED IS, TO BE THERE AND DO IT!”

OTHER DETAILS:

  • Includes mallet
  • You can make a 13″ or a 16″ (Have a good idea of which one you’d like but you can decide that day)
  • If you wish, bring a stone or special stick to use as the handle of the drum on the back. Look through Wayne’s gallery here to see: SEE DRUMS
  • We need 8 people to run class but can only have 13. If this class fills up I’ll schedule another one soon!
