HEART OF THE EARTH: SACRED DRUM MAKING CEREMONY w/Brooke Flying Bear

The drum is a sacred instrument that invokes the heart and speaks a universal language. Its rhythmic heartbeat is at the center of ceremonies held by people all over the world. The shamanic drum is used to communicate with the Spirit and to connect our hearts with the heartbeat of the Earth. It is a powerful medicine that heals the body, heart, mind, and spirit. 

In this workshop we will come together in a sacred space to create our own ceremonial drums and learn a frame drum-tying technique that I received from our community's spiritual leader and elder, Maestro Manuel Rufino. 

We will be making one-sided shamanic hand drums, using wooden frames made of maple and hides made of elk, buffalo or deer hide, and sinew. **

**In this special class you will have the option of dying your hide in natural indigo dye. You do not need to dye your drum, but please do notify us if you would like to do this. It will be an extra $40 to use the Indigo Dye bath.

Cost of the workshop includes art materials and drum supplies.
Please choose one of the following:

$275 for 16" Deer, Elk or Buffalo Drum
$300 for 18" Deer, Elk or Buffalo Drum

Please register by Friday November 30th in order to reserve your place.

Send your FULL DEPOSIT through PayPal to theholyexperiment@gmail.com
or Venmo: @brooke-gillespie by Friday November 30th to insure that your materials will arrive on time.
