Here is an idea of what your journey with Daithi will include for the 2 days.

Day 1 

* Begin with a journey to gather your intention for your drum.

* Learn about what it takes to start a drum from 'scratch', including a drum rim making demonstration. 

* Choose a section of the hide you wish to use for your drum, cut it along with the lacing and ready it for soaking. 

* Make your own beater. Bring a special piece of wood (min. 1-1/2" thick and 12" long), learn how to shape it, stitch the beater head leather, stuff it and decorate it.

* Prepare your rim with special engraving, your name, date, or symbols that mean something to the power of your drum.

Day 2 

* Any required prep work on the rim or beater that didn't get finished in day one can be done at the beginning of day 2.

* Stretch the soaked hide over the wooden drum rim and bind it with the hide lacing. This sounds much easier then it is, but there is a process to do it right and Daithi will guide you through that. 

* Hold ceremony to birth your drum to infuse it with your intention and awaken it to purpose. This is a very important and respectful ceremony of thanks and intent.

*Learn how best to care for your drum to keep it in the best condition and vibration.

COST & DEPOSIT

Reserve your space for this 2 day event with a deposit of $110 no later than April 14th 2019. 

Total cost for the event will depend greatly on the particulars of the drum you wish to create. All available skins are from wild animals with healthy organic lives, which gives their hides great variability for vibration and sound. The spirit of the animal lived in its true environment, not farmed, so the life lives magically in the hide. It continues to live and be honored in the drums made from their essence.
