Private Drum Making Workshop
Private Drum Making Workshops are held at Leon's home (193 East River Road, St. George Brant). Leon prepares the drum frame and rawhide then helps the customer make the drum. Leon can accommodate one to a maximum of five people. The finished drum remains at Leon's home for about four days until properly dried. A birthing ceremony is conducted upon pickup.
