February 14 – 16th, 2014. Three Day Drum And Rattle Making Workshop – in the Cherokee style! With Karen Hutchins and JJ Farrell.
The Ancients recognized the power of creating our instruments and infusing our heart/soul into them.
Class participants will be creating a 13 inch drum in the Cherokee fashion with rawhide, sinew and wooden frame. Participants will be asked to bring their own wood for the beater and rattles, although there will be extra sticks available.
This workshop uses techniques taught by Dawn Kenny of Virginia. Feathers, beads and other decoration can also be added and brought to the workshops.
Advance registration is required to ensure that enough hides are cut ahead of time for everyone. Reserve your spot now!
