Drum Making and Ceremony

General Events The beat of the drum brings an awareness of the sacred and powerful beat of all of creation. Creating this sacred instrument of peace will help you to hear and feel the rhythms that connect the earth, its diverse peoples and all creatures. Drum maker and storyteller Wayne Manthey has helped bring many drums to life at the FSC since his first workshop here in 2007. Participants use wood, deer hides, walnut stain and other natural elements to create a unique, personal drum. In between, there is time for reflection and storytelling about the ancient, spiritual tradition of drumming. Finally, we will participate in a drumming circle and learn about ceremony.
