Just like the first workshop we will have a special guest to help us through the making of the Drum and thanks to our Wellness Ambassador Kent for bringing this idea to life!

This workshop filled up very quickly the first time, so luckily with the support of the City we were able to offer a second with our friends in the Beltline to those who were on the waitlist. We have only 2 spots remaining! Contact Tamara ASAP to reserve one of the spots.

If you are interested in attending the workshop on the 4th or a similar workshop in the future please let us know.
