Medicine Drum Making Workshop @ Silver Lake Nature Center
Jan 29 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

*THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!* Contact us for more info about our classes, or register now for our May class!

Open to Adults and Children!
The drum is a part of native heritage from tribal cultures all over the world. This single sided drum is crafted using a wooden hoop or frame and a stretched rawhide head and lacing. Covered on only one side, the back is laced to form the symbol of a medicine wheel with the four cardinal directions that also serve as a hand hold. Great for drumming circles and meditation!

In this workshop you will be supplied everything you need to create your own frame drum and accompanying drum stick. While you are making your creations Valarie and Ian will teach you the care and feeding of your drum, as well as how to use them in healing and cleansing ceremonies.

We will begin with a Drum Journey to connect to the Heartbeat of the Drum, and then start the process of creating our drums and beaters.  After creating the drum, we’ll celebrate its birth with a special ceremony.  Birthing a drum is an intense process, one not easily forgotten. Create this medicine item in the Silverlake Nature Center and outside on the beautiful grounds! More info HERE

Nature Offering Bag Workshop @ Hawk Mountain
May 28 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

Craft your own beautiful leather Nature Offering bag! Together we will develop the practice of art-making with intention and create a leather bag for your journeys in nature. Offering bags are used to carry and protect your sacred herbs and other sacred objects. In this class you will learn how to craft your own bag out of buckskin using leather tools and hand stitching techniques. Each bag is imbued with your own special energy. We can use our bag to draw to us the qualities we seek, to guide us, strengthen us, and to give back. Together we will create this sacred container that empowers your creative process. After, we will explore the beautiful area at Hawk Mountain to give an offering and connect with nature.
