VANCOUVER- Drum making workshop
Time & Location
About The Event
Join Derrick Whiteskyclould of the Metis Nation in a ceremonial and educational drum making workshop.
This hands-on workshop will introduce you to the natural materials involved in making a traditional First Nations drum. Rawhide 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. Following the build 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.
