Drum Making Workshop

 Drum Making Workshop

It’s been a long time but we’re finally able to have a drum-making workshop. We are really looking forward to connecting with people again!

In this workshop, you will have an opportunity to make a Hoop Drum with an expert drum maker.  Phil Shaw will guide you through the process of making one of these drums using all-Canadian materials: a steam-bent cedar shell made here at Shaw Percussion and Canadian deer hide.

We can only do these workshops with small groups. Please register so we can guarantee a spot for you. 

If you have a group of at least five people that would like to have a drum-making workshop contact us to work out a date and time for your group.

 Location: Shaw Percussion

5258 Old Homestead Rd. Sutton W. ( Georgina) Ontario 

Date & Time:

TBA: Contact Us for upcoming workshops.

Cost: $186.45 ($165.00 + HST)

All materials for a 14-inch frame drum and mallet are included.

    Thanks. The workshop was great. I love my drum and can hardly wait for it to dry so I can introduce myself to it.

    If we were to organize a 4 hour drum making workshop with you for 10 youth could you possibly let me know a price per participant? Of if we had a larger group 20? or 30? Would the price vary? I do not have a commitment to proceed at this time, I only making an initial query.
