We will be making either the basic laced style and the pegged style of drum at this workshop. This listing is to make a modern version of the type of drum that was made by some of our Northern European ancestors. The hide is attached to the hoop with a series of wooden pegs, while the handle is made from a stick or antler and attached to the hoop with rawhide thongs. If you wish to make a basic laced drum, please choose the other listing.

The workshop comes with everything you need to make your chosen drum and a drum beater. Hides available are red stag deer (hart), horse or reindeer. All drums will be made on cedar hoops.


These drums have a primal sound that is hard to describe. The way that the handle is attached allows the head to fully vibrate without any interference. The reindeer is especially wonderful sounding, and reminds me of firelit ritual in pre-Xtian times, with the Aurora Borealis overhead. The handle of the drum can be a forked stick or an antler, depending on your preference.
