Community Social and Drumming with Hosts Linda and Robert Knodle

COMMUNITY DRUMMING AND SOCIAL with Hosts Linda and Robert Knodle

Every third Saturday November through May at the Web of Life Church

Linda and Robert will bring their community drum and invite those who want to drum with us and those who want to dance to the rhythm. It will be followed by a community potluck and conversation. Linda and Robert will bring a veggie, non-dairy soup. We ask that you bring a side dish, your favorite non-alcoholic beverage and bowl and spoon.

“We have built hand drums and two community drums. Our first community drum barrel was presented to the Bainbridge Island Waldorf School fourth grade class. They soaked the trimmed elk hide and lashed the head with our help. The each made a drum mallet as well. The experience was so delightful we had to build one for us to share.”
