Frame drums have been used in many cultures around the world throughout human history. Drumming has made a strong comeback in recent years, with science backing up the many benefits of the activity. Research indicates that drumming speeds healing, boosts the immune system, reduces tension, anxiety and stress. It can even help control chronic pain. In this class, each participant will complete a 15” drum made with a bent wood frame and bison rawhide, as well as a beater. Class length depends on each maker’s skill, but expect to be here at least two hours. Bring a lunch or snack. Registration and payment must be received by Feb 1 so that we can order supplies. Limited to 8 participants; ages 16 years and up. Fee: $130 for members, $150 for non-members. Due to material investment, we cannot refund fees in the event of your cancellation.
