The Friends of Murphys Point are excited to announce we some spaces for an in-person drum-making workshop with Helena Neveu!
As you may recall, we launched a series of workshops earlier this year in an effort to continue our commitment to provide opportunities for Indigenous programming. We began with two virtual sessions that featured storytelling and a demonstration of how to make the rawhide and hoops for drums.
Next in the series we are offering two in-person workshops to build the drums! Helena Neveu (Walksfar Woman… Waasaabiidaasome Kwe – Batchewana First Nation of Ojibways – see attached bio) will lead the day-long sessions (10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on either Friday, July 30 or Saturday, Aug. 7). The cost for the in-person workshop is $100 per person and materials are included. Remaining materials will be used for rattle and jewellery making.
The series culminates with a “drum birthing ceremony” on a date to be announced.
All in-person sessions will be held in compliance with public health guidelines.
Spaces were offered to virtual workshop participants and Friends members first, but we have a few left and there will be a waiting list.
If you are interested, please register for one of the following sessions:
The cost is $100 – see payment instructions when you register at one of the above links.
Hope you can join us!
