About the Event

Join us on a journey to create your very own Medicine Drum!

The workshop is split into 2 parts.  

Days 1 and 2 are when we birth and create our Shamanic Medicine Drums.  

On Friday we will sit in circle and journey through the process of honouring both the animal and tree which have contributed to the creation of the drum.

We discover the totem energies that present themselves for your drum and together in ceremony create a Sacred Instrument that will journey with you on your Earth Walk. We bring all the elements and energies together as we create our Sacred Instrument.

On Saturday we craft your drum beaters, learn how to care for and maintain our drums and Awaken our drums in Sacred Ceremony.

Day 3 is an opional day where we learn about Drum lore and some of the many ways that we can work with our drums.  There will be a combination of Sound healing, Sacred Song circles and Spirit Journey work.  This day is tailered to the participants and content will depend on previous experience and interests of the group.

This day can also be attended without needing to attend the first 2 days.

All Materials are supplied for a 16" Willow or Ash drum, with Kangaroo hide.

There is also a choice for a 16" Red Oak or Rosewood hoop for an extra $50.

All beater materials and ceremonial cleansing herbs are included in the price.

Please visit our "Drum Totem Energies" page under "On Offer" for more info on the different energies.


Friday 9:00am - 5:00pm

Saturday 9:00am - 5:00pm 

Sunday 9:30am - 3:00pm 

Morning and Afternoon Tea provided. 

Please bring your own packed lunch.  Depending on Covid restrictions we may bring share plates, however that will be decided closer to the time.

Making your own drum is not a quick process, in order to create a Sacred Instrument we are required as the drum maker to give of our energy and time just as the tree and animal have given of themselves.  

We do hold drum journeys as part of the workshop.  If you have never journeyed before, don't worry we walk you through it.

An important part of the process is the Awakening Ceremony.  This is done to awaken and breath life into your drum, so that your drum will be ready to journey and work with you on your Earth Walk.

At the end of the workshop, you will leave with a beautiful drum and beater ready to embark on your journey together.  Along with an understanding of how to work with your drum.
