Event Description
Have you ever wanted to construct your own drum? Now you can at Rebuilding Exchange from local luthier and repair technician, Patrick Sundlof. In this class you will identify what makes a sturdy vessel for your drum and be able to choose one from his collection (or bring your own). Rebuilding Exchange will supply the proper soaked animal skins and you will spend the class learning to apply them to your vessel.  Note: If you choose to bring your own vessel, choose something with a solid frame that is made of wood, metal, glass, or clay and is no bigger than 22" in diameter. Make sure that it is sturdy (no thin cookie tins, they don't last very long). If you have questions about the vessel you want to use, please email workshops@rebuildingexchange.org. If you don't have a vessel to bring, you can purchase a pre-made kit. These are available to purchase through the ticket link.  ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Patrick Sundlof has been repairing musical instruments for the past 15 years from Banjos to organs; amps to zithers he has years of experience to help you build the instrument of your dreams.
