    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.
