About the Event

Have you ever wanted to make a drum? 

This class will make a hoop style drums with deer hide using upcycled wooden bowls as the frames. 

Sarah Heartsong is excited to help you birth your drum with this time-honored art form that spans many cultures that she’s brought into this modern day.

The whole day is in ceremony. 

We start with a Journey to envision your Drum, its spiritual significance to you and your Work in this World as well as colors, images and elements to include in its making. 

Each drum will be able to be dyed while wet according to your Vision with Sarah’s help, but this is YOUR sacred drum making for YOUR vision of this Drum.

Some more details:

  • There will be a selection of hoops to choose between and between 9"-12" diameter.
  • You will cut, dye and string your own drum with Heartsong’s help.
  • You can bring snacks to share. We will have a selection of hot teas to share.
  • Most of the class will be taught at your pace so you can take care of yourself as needed. (Breaks happen as you need them, but Heartsong will help keep you on track with timing.)
  • You will leave with a wet drum and will need to let it dry to get to the final stage where you can hear the true voice of your drum (takes a couple days or so). This particular drum making will have this drying process happen over the Solstice, which is a Magical Time and we’ll bring in some of those Teachings to this Making as well.
  • If you decide to dye the hide your hands will probably end up dyed as well. Wear comfy clothes you won't be upset if they get some dye on them. (You probably won't if you are careful, but one never knows, so be warned.)
  • Times are approximate as we may finish early depending on how long it takes everyone to get through. We will start on time, so please arrive a little before 1:00, if at all possible.

This is a fundraiser for Erosia Land Sanctuary in Shelton, WA. We’re putting in campsites and will be hosting a place where spiritual seekers can come pray on Land held in a Sacred Way. This also supports the preservation of our forests and our Goddess Tree, Ambrosia. Thank you for your help!
