This two day workshop will take place indoors at Denmark Farm and will encompass you making your own shamanic drum and beater. All materials are included in the workshop fee; please bring any special items you would like to attach to your drum while making it (feathers, beads, 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.
After allowing the raw hide on your drum 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 every one has finished, everyone will be invited to take part in a shamanic journey with their drum to find the spirit within.
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.
