About the Event

Create a shamanic drum and work with the ancestors. 

We have been working with drums since the beginning of sound.  Zoe Allison-Rockingbear has been making drums for many years, and found them a beautiful way to contact our ancestors, for healing, for traveling, and for answers to our questions.

Participants will make a one-sided shamanic drum. The hides will be either deer or elk, and the drum size is 13 inches wide by 3 inches deep. 

Drum creation work is intense, and you will finish your drum that day. Participants will sit on the floor, so dress comfortably and bring a cushion to sit on.  

All supplies are included with your registration. The workshop total is $175 payable to, with $65 for supplies due in advance to pay for supplies by February 12th. Please bring cash on the day of creation.

All the supplies you will need will be ordered on the registration day. This will be an intimate group of only ten participants. (First 10 to register)

Please bring:

  • a small handful of cornmeal for your ancestors
  • two towels
  • a sharp knife (no box cutters)
  • chopsticks
  • a large plastic bag
  • a pencil or pen
  • wooden clothespins (many)
