Thinking of buying a drum? You’ve been exploring shamanism and spirituality and really want a companion on your journey with you? Instead of buying a mass manufactured drum, have you considered making (or birthing…) your drum? Birthing your drum, and being part of a process of creating and bringing into life your very own drum can be a very powerful & fulfilling process that is totally unique to you.
This is a day-long workshop where participants get to make and bring home their very own shamanic drum. The drums are 16 inches in diameter, and we have very special raw hides from reindeer. Our hoops and hides are obtained from Ireland, the British Isles and Europe, and being of this part of the world are in closer harmony with us. Made in the traditional way, and with the energy of very powerful animals, these drums provide rich and deep tones. Drum sticks are also provided with these drums. The reindeer hides were specially selected for use on these drums, as these hides are not affected by the damp and cold weather we have here in Ireland, as compared to some other hides that may be used.
Over the day, not only will we be physically working to put these drums together, each person will be brought through a series of exercises to spiritually connect with the spirit of the trees that the wooden rims come from and the powerful wild animals that have given their hide for this purpose. These drums will be a strong & powerful companion for people who use drums for meditative or spiritual work.
