Many of you have asked me about making a mallet for your drum. And I always tell you how, thinking this is easy, you'll figure it out. But I have never showed you, and many of you keep showing up without a mallet .

This workshop will give you a basic drumstick with the strike end made of cloth. And the knowledge of how to build one whenever you want, which is valuable as I encourage anyone with a drum to make several mallets and to make them different from each other. The reason is simple: different mallets will play your drum differently.
I typically use bamboo for the hafting, but if you have a stick or piece of antler or bone you would rather use, bring it.
