You will learn ancient skills of shamanic drum making in a sacred space, with natural materials sourced responsibly, in a similar way as our ancestors would have created their sacred tools. The drum creates a energetic bridge/sacred space of sound for spirit work. We will open and close sacred space at the start and end of this workshop and honour the spirit of the deer and trees that will be re-birthed as your drum.
i) Smudging ceremony
ii) Open the Directions, call Guides, Power Animals and Spirit of the Tree and Deer
iii) Honouring Ceremony
iv) Cutting process
v) Lacing the drum

At the end of this workshop you will leave with your new shamanic drum, the necessary skills and knowledge to build your own drum and beater, a set of written instructions and a link of a video tutorial.
This is an opportunity to deeply connect with your shamanic tools by making your 14" deer skinned drum thus honouring its spirit.
