About the Event

$375 person | 8hrs  Cost includes materials for the drum.

In this ceremonial workshop, I share all that have learned in my journey of birthing rawhide hand-held drums. ​

We will be weaving 18" drums and making a beater. 

We will talk about: 

  • Significance of the drum and how it's used ceremonially 
  • Where to source hides and hoops 
  • How to prepare the hide, including how to come into proper relationship with the spirit of the animal and trees whose body we are creating with 
  • Symbolism 
  • Best practices and mechanics 
  • Finer points of working with each type of hide 
  • Drum care ​**We will be pulling drums with a partner. If you have a friend or family member taking class with you, that is wonderful. If you are coming on your own, there will be someone lovely to match with.

Please bring: A bag lunch. A water bottle. If possible, please bring an old towel. Please wear clothes you don't mind getting a bit wet or dirty.

We use the strength of our hands, arms, and fingers: cutting rawhide, pulling and tying lacing, and sewing leather. If you are unable to perform this type of movement, and you would like to participate with a physical proxy, please let us know.

My name is Andrea Leigh Rubalcaba-Berry. I am a two-spirit person of mixed heritage. Each day I try to live my dream of reclaiming and celebrating the healing traditions of my indigenous ancestors. The last 13 years I have spent studying, training, and integrating traditional ceremonial healing practices into my life. I feel so grateful to have been guided to this path, and equally grateful to offer the gifts that have been shared with me along the way. I love making tools, and helping people care for themselves with the beauty of their own hearts with ancestral medicine.

Class Refund Policy:  Refunds for classes will be made when canceled at least 24 hours prior to the class.
