What else you should know

I do have studio dogs, so please notify me if you need me to have them contained, they are very friendly but I understand if you would like a dog free workspace.

What I’ll provide

Snacks
I provide a light snack of salad, teas, coffee, water, breads, meat, dessert, mostly organic and somewhat seasonal.
Equipment
Tools like scissors, punches, mallets, pliers, sanding blocks, pehns and paints.

What to bring

Please wear clothes that can handle wet rawhide and sawdust!

Where you'll be

We will have the drum making workshop in my art studio, with lots of tables and room to spread out and really get into making your drum. It is a nice space with my artwork on the walls. There is a 1100 square feet brick courtyard with 9 feet adobe walls, a beautiful place to have the workshop weather permitting.
