Darren Charlie helps Marion Corless with the intricate dreamweaver design on the back of the drum.

A drum is a treasure any time of the year

Last Saturday, the Station House Gallery hosted its first drum building workshop.

Last Saturday, the Station House Gallery hosted its first drum building workshop.

We are very lucky to have Darren Charlie right now in our community.

He is a very well known drum builder as well as drummer and singer from the Lower Mainland and usually lives on the Chehalis Reserve.

There he also offers boat tours on Harrison  River and Lower Harrison  Lake where the eagles circle by the hundreds right now looking for salmon.

Do you know that this is Sasquatch territory?

Charlie can tell you incredible stories about these mythical creatures.

Just a couple of weeks ago one was sited on the reserve again. But that is another story.

The workshop was full and it was fun to watch the intent faces of the participants creating their very own first drums.

Under Charlie’s great guidance they created truly beautiful pieces as you can see in the photo.

Now that the word is out we hope that Charlie will hold more of these workshops.

It is very special to own your personal drum or to give one as a present to your very best friend.

Just phone the Station House Gallery for further information.

Or talk to Darren Charlie directly at 250-303-3281.
