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: £220 per person

Or if you would like to book the day just for you then the cost is £250


The workshop runs from 10am until about 5pm (we don't stop until you have finished), Please bring your own lunch - I will provide plenty of tea and cake - special diets are no problem so let me know if you are gluten free or anything else free.
