Drum Making Workshop

Speaker(s) Wayne Manthey


All are welcome! Please share with others... 

We are excited to announce that FSIM's 20th Anniversary Annual Meeting will be held at The Marsh on Thursday, January 9, 2020. Our keynote speaker that evening will be Jaime Meyer of Drumming the Soul Awake. We will be inviting anyone that has their own drum to bring it to the event.

In anticipation of the 20th Anniversary event, FSIM has scheduled two separate Drum Making workshops, with renowned drum maker, Wayne Manthey. So, if you have ever dreamed of having AND making your own drum, this is your chance! In the workshop, Wayne will walk attendees through the steps to make their own drum. He will provide the wooden frame, deer hide, stain, etc.; you'll want to bring a small rock or other smooth object - one that could fit easily into the palm of your hand - that can go inside the drum handle.

You can choose to make a 13" or 16" drum. The 13" drum will generally have a somewhat higher tone; the 16" drum will generally have a lower tone (but not always). Many people choose the larger drum, but either one will be amazing

Be ready to pick a drum when you register:
13" Drum $126.00
16" Drum $162.00

Both workshops will take place at Wayne's workshop located at: 887 Smith Ave. S., West St. Paul, MN 55118.

Sunday, September 8 - 12:00/noon - 4 PM

You will want to sign up ASAP, as each workshop is limited to eight participants. Deadline is Wed., September 4 by noon.
