Medicine Drum Building Classes


Build your own Medicine Drum, an 8 or 12 sided wood drum, approx 14” or 22” wide. These drums are built in sections, based on a old traditional style from North Dakota, I have found it to be wonderfully resonant, a great meditation drum, ceremonial quality in timbre.
