About The Event
Children instinctively little drummers and march to their own beat. Drumming connects kids to their heart beat and the heart beat of Mother Earth. It provides grounding, centering, and a wonderful release of stress, anger, and frustration. In this class parents will participate in a shared learning experience with their children, making a drum that your child can use and connect with throughout their life.
This single sided drum is a traditional native drum crafted using a wooden frame and a stretched deer 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 hold.
In this workshop they will be supplied everything they need to create their own frame drum and accompanying beater. We will begin with a short story telling, and then start the process of creating our drums and drum sticks. After creating the drum, we'll celebrate its birth with a special ceremony. The drum face can later be painted with designs or anything your child likes.
$75 Registration includes all materials for a 10" diameter drum and beater
