African Djembe Building Workshop


Event Expired
SKU: N/A Category:


There’s nothing more binding than building your own instruments with friends. Here’s Will and Kyle at the last workshop!

The djembe building workshop will provide you with all the supplies and guidance necessary to build your own personal djembe drum. During the djembe building process, you will birth your own drum, and I will teach you how to build, tune and take care of your drum.

We will be utilizing a Ghana or Ivory Coast djembe kit, which includes all of the parts required to build a djembe.

Two of our favorite Tiny Ladies with their big Drums!

Djembe Kit Includes:
Ghana or Ivory Coast Djembe Shell
High Quality Drum Rope (color choices available)
Properly Sized Steel Rings (made in the U.S.A)
Drum skin (without hair)

Cost & Materials:

$250 (Ghana shell) or $350 (Ivory Coast shell) includes all materials for Approx. 12.5″ X 24″ djembe drum. All other materials will be provided and are included in the price of the workshop. Would you like some additional henna decoration to your drum head, please let me know so I can prepare for that, and let you know the cost.  We are also able to reserve your spot in the workshop if you would just like to make a down payment for your drum which is $150 down payment for the Ghana shell and a $200 deposit on the Ivory Coast.

Please pack a lunch, I will provide fruits/vegetables & tea or water for light snacks. You are also welcome to stay Friday and/or Saturday night here at the monolithic dome home & retreat center for Donation Based.

There’s No Place Like Dome!!!  Here’s the crew celebrating at The Solar Eclipse Retreat, an incredible experience!


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. Further directions will be given upon receiving your deposit. Remaining payment after deposit is due on day of class, no refunds but rescheduling is welcome.

We had an incredible weekend with 3 amazing deaf women stay with us who could drum and dance better than most people who can hear music! It was so touching to watch them feel the music, a life changing experience for sure.
Welcome to the Dome! Where creativity is celebrated & you can let your inner weirdo shine! Ha!
