Wayne Manthey is a nationally known drum maker and teacher of drum making. His approach is spiritual, honoring the animals who provided the hides and the trees who donated the wood. The healing properties of a drum are found in the elements that make it: wood and animal hide. Making a personal frame drum is a journey that is individually and spiritually meaningful. The drum symbolizes the heartbeat of life, the heartbeat of the community. It is not simply an art form, but a tool for cleansing, centering and focusing one’s intentions for health and happiness.

Students will choose a pre-constructed frame and deer hides. Focusing on your personal creative flow, Wayne will take you through the steps to create your individual drum.

Students to bring: a small stone or token to add to the back handle piece of the drum (optional), snacks and/or bag lunch if needed
