It is an intensive and time-consuming process to make a drum from start to finish: depending how long a lesson/demonstration you book, the more steps you can personally try for yourself!
We will show you how it is done the traditional way – without the use of power tools – so be prepared to warm-up your arm muscles! If it up to you how “hands-on” you want the lesson to be.
Drum-making lessons start at $50Bz per hour for a one-to-one lesson.
If you want to do an entire drum-making workshop (where you get to make your own drum from start to finish, with a few shortcuts for you along the way!) you will need to be available for two days, with at least a week between each day due to the time taken for the deerskin to dry. The cost, including taking home your own primero drum, is $800Bz.
