Carving workshops + tools


And the results, all done and the students have done a excellent job of painting, a lot of hard work, much concentration, and willpower, but they now have an autherntic handmade + painted drum.



The final part of a drum making & design painting workshop, here each student gets to choose a design, which I formatt into Tsimshian, northwest coast designs and they copy this onto the drum, and I teach them the various technics about proper acrylic painting and much more.
