Djembe Building Workshop-10-21-17
Come join me while I guide you in this djembe building workshop! This workshop will provide you with all the supplies and guidance necessary to build your own personal djembe drum. During the building process, where you will birth your own drum, I will teach you how to build and take care of your drum, in a sacred setting. This workshop will give you all the knowledge necessary to repair and tune your djembe in the future!  You can choose to place a non-refundable deposit for the event, or make a full payment, each depending on the kind of shell you would like to build.  This class will take place at my studio in the North Georgia mountains near Tallulah Falls, GA; about 1.5 hours away from Atlanta and Asheville. Please consider this trip in your plans for the day. Directions will be given upon receiving your deposit. Remaining payment after deposit is due on day of class, no refunds but rescheduling is welcome. All deposits are required at least 7 days before workshop date.
