Saturday, I had the honour of being invited to a drum-making workshop with an Ojibwe Elder.

The drum frame is made of yellow cedar.
The hide is deer.

You can read my blog about the experience here at GardenTenders.

MsDebbieP,

I read your blog on LJ, then visited your Garden Tenders site for more detail. Your drum is a great project. Thanks for sharing it with both sites.

I was lucky that it contained some “woodworking” in it so I could post it here :D

Thanks :)

thanks. And yes, it was an honour.
The best parts of the day were listening to him speak about important issues such as working together, being grateful, honouring all things.. and then listening to the singing at the end.

Being invited to things like this is few and far between for many. Sharing the experience does them honor as well.

Thank you for sharing, and great job on the drum.

What a great learning experience and what a great story you have to pass on to others. We would all be better off if we heeded LJ Matthew’s philosophy.

Great job and thanks for the story.
