Saturday


This workshop requires a $75.00 fee to participate.

Each participant will start with a 8″ x 15″ ashiko shell. Together we will sand, paint, and customize their drum shell. Next, we tie-dye a goatskin which we will set and pull tight on the drums. They are ready to play once the skin is dry – art that gives back!

Please register your child by emailing staff@paralounge.net
