Native American Drum Making OctoberOct 23 2021 11:00am - 05:00pm UTC601 E Seltice Way, Suite 206, Post Falls, ID 83854, USA


Spend the day sacredly crafting your own Native American Drum. The drums include beautiful maple wooden drum heads from 16”, 18” or 20″ in diameter and expertly tanned hides of deer, elk, moose, buffalo, cow, goat or horse. Horse, bear, moose or buffalo hides are a bit heavier and slightly more fussy in damp climates. That being said, a part of making your own drum is bringing the power of the animal itself through the drum so, take some time to research the qualities and gifts of each animal, then use your intuition to make the right choice for yourself.

Over the course of the day you will participate in each aspect of the sacred ceremony of making a Native American Drum. You’ll learn how to prepare the drum through a smudging and honoring ritual, how to tune into the consciousness of your drum, how to work with the medicine (power) of your drum, how to honor the spirit of the animal who gave its hide for your drum and the ways to use your drum for ceremony and healing.

This is a wonderful process and typically takes 4-5 hours, depending on the size of drum that you choose. Native American Drums with maple frames and your choice of elk, moose, cow, buffalo, horse or goat hide. Visit to see prices of these round drum kits. Make sure to order only the ‘round’ drum frame and the hides NOT pre-drilled. You’ll purchase the kit you want and bring it to class. This course will allow you to sacredly craft your own drum, honor and raise the spirit of the animal through the hide to the head of the drum, while experiencing the innate and healing power of drumming.

Children are welcome to attend the class and if they are making drums they will need to have a parents assistance with threading and pulling the waxed lacing.

Bring your own lunch or snacks and beverages.
