Join us on this journey of self-discovery, and musical enrichment today!

  • Create your own Native American style frame drum and connect with its animal medicine.
  • The sustainably harvested hides used in the workshop ensure ethical production practices.
  • With a $100 deposit, secure your spot at Spirit Drum Creation Workshop and take home a beautiful, well-crafted drum.

Drums are the heartbeat of Mother Earth. ​

Please be sure to wear your play clothes, since we will be staining the drum frames and there is water involved with stretching the hide. This is an all-day event. We take a one-hour lunch break and small breaks during the day. These drums have a nice, deep tone suitable for journeying, meditation, and fun at a drum circle. 

$100 Deposits are required one month before the workshop. Any orders that do not include payment received by July 26th will be cancelled. The remaining balance is due the morning we start the workshop.

We offer frame drum making workshops in 10", 12", 14", 15" and 16" sizes, subject to availability. The 10" and 12" drums are half as thick as the larger drums.

Price Table:  

hide/size 10" 12" 14" 15" 16"
deer 144 166 266 299 333
elk 166 177 288 313 344

*Other sizes and hides may be available on a one-to-one basis. Please contact us for more info.

Deer - Opens the heart chakra. The gentle spirit of the deer teaches us to follow its example in unconditional love, kindness and trust.

Elk - Gives the stamina, endurance & ability to pace yourself as you go through the edges from the known to the unknown. The vibration of elk opens the third chakra, the solar plexus.

Elk has a deeper tone than deer. The larger the drum, the deeper the tone and stronger the felt vibration.

$100 Deposits are required one month before Spirit Drum Creation workshops. There are no refunds. If you must cancel, please give us 24 hours' notice! Once we put the hides into the water, they must be made the next day. 

The cancelation policy on drum birthing workshops depends on how much notice you give:

  • 24 hours' notice - we will reschedule you at our convenience.
  • Less than 24 hours' notice - we will build the drum for you. You can pay the balance due & shipping to receive it or use your deposit as store credit for any of our items within 60 days of your scheduled workshop. Store credit not used within 60 days will be considered a donation to Spirit Risings travel funds.
  • We will only reschedule you one time.

Whippoorwill Farms / Spirit Workshop

Whippoorwill Farms in its self is an amazing place. Not only is it an eco-friendly farm, but the events they hold at their place are great.
The Spirit Drum making workshop was totally exciting, fun, informative and would sign up for it again if Angela and Michael from Spirit Rising come back to Whippoorwill Farms.
The workshop was laid back and at the end very rewarding when your medicine drum was completed.

Thank you Kelly! We're happy that you enjoyed it, and would love to come back to #whipperwillfarms!

Angela and Mike you bring so much good energy to the drum workshop. Helping me and the other particpants create our own medicine through these drums is pure love energy. Thank you for creating this space for us.
