Hand Drum Workshop

February 26 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

Educator assisting a child during a drum making workshop.

Sunday, February 26, 11:00am

Drums have been an important part of Native American cultures throughout the Americas for centuries. Learn about the history of these instruments, as well as their continued importance to Native American culture as you make your very own rawhide drum. The drums made in this workshop will be 10” elk rawhide and come with their own drum stick. Spend a fun afternoon learning this skill while enjoying a workshop that cannot be beaten. 

Please Note: We also have a highly limited selection of 14” Elk drum kits, which can be reserved on a first come, first serve basis. Advance payment is required for all drum kits. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Please visit our website to register via Eventbrite. Questions? Please call (860) 868-0518 or email [email protected].

Price of Participation for 10” drums, including materials and instructions: $45 for IAIS Members, $50 for Non-Members. All 14” drums: $90.
