sold out - Drum Making Workshop with Derrick Whiteskyclould
Join Derrick Whiteskyclould of the Metis Nation in a ceremonial and educational drum making workshop.
This hands-on workshop will teach participants how to make a traditional First Nations drum. Raw hide from elk skin and cedar tree wood will be combined to connect you with the natural elements of this instrument building workshop. Frames will be pre-cut, no carving is involved. Derrick will complete the process with a ceremonial blessing and perform traditional Metis and Coast Salish songs. No experience is necessary. Each participant will leave with their own traditional 16” drum and beater.
