Shamanic Drum Making Workshop at Denmark Farm

Birth your own shamanic drum – you will be guided in the powerful and humbling process of birthing your very own shamanic drum and beater. Not only will you create and connect to the Spirit of your drum (Shamanic horse), you will also learn to work with your Drum, how to ‘travel’ and invoke the spirit of your drum.

This two day workshop will take place indoors at Denmark Farm and will encompass you making your own shamanic drum and beater.

Please bring any special items you would like to attach to your drum while making it (feathers, beads, charms, hair braids, etc).

During the workshop you will be using animal bi-products in the way of raw hide and leather. The process takes you through soaking the raw hide and stretching it over a pre-made wooden drum ring, making a handle and weaving on the back of the drum, which tensions the raw hide and makes your shamanic drum look good. The raw hide on your drum will then be allowed to dry and shrink for a taught fit over night.

The second day will allow you time to finish off decorating your drum and drum beater. Then when everyone has finished, you will be invited to take part in a shamanic journey with your drum to find the spirit within.

Drum ring size will be between 16 – 18 inch diameter, and drum skin is goat velum.

Craftsman Tony Eames of Earth Encounters will help you to bring this beautiful medicine tool forth into being and journey to find the spirit within.

Places are limited to 6 participants and must be booked in advance.

Bookings for this event will close on Friday 20 October, to allow the tutor time to purchase materials.
