Drum Making Workshop

On Dartmoor (near Moretonhampstead) make your own beautiful frame drum and beater from scratch, working with the Spirit of the Drum and your helping spirits. Using natural, sustainably and ethically sourced materials in a respectful and heartful way.

The hides are from local Red Deer, the wood for the hoops is fast growing sustainably managed Willow (also wonderfully light), the ring is forged by our local blacksmith (Greg Abel) and the suede and fabric for covering the beater and the handle are recycled.

Cost: £210.00 per person


The workshop runs from 10am until about 5pm (we don't stop until you have finished) and includes a delicious vegetarian lunch and plenty of tea and cake. Special diets are no problem. Due to Covid19 restrictions/precautions I consider it wise to only offer two places at a time.
