3 Day Frame Drum Making Intensive

About this workshop

Handcraft your own Zilli-Tar frame drum with instrument maker Matt Stonehouse.

Over three days, you will use traditional hand tools and steam-bending methods to make your own drum. You will learn about timber species and selection, shaping the main drum shell, hand-hammering zills (cymbals), skin application and much more.

At the end of the workshop, you will take your finished instrument home with you.

This workshop is suitable for adults 18+ and teens 15+ if accompanied by a parent or guardian also participating in the workshop.

Please note: Natural skins will be used on these drums.
