About the Event

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

In this Advanced Weekend Workshop we will go on a journey to create a Shamanic Medicine drum from beginning to end.

We will discover how to create a truely powerful instrument, while learning all the little tricks that Tamaryn uses to make truely amazing drums.

In this 3 day workshop we will work with our creation story, to discover and ground in our true essence, while working with and honouring the Tree and Animal Spirits that will contribute to the energetic imprint of our drums. 

In this great time of change, the world as a collective is going through an initiation.  We are in the thick of it, and it is time to remember who we truely are and discover the strength that lies within.  We will explore tools to assist us as we journey through the dark night of the soul.  How can we journey through this time in grace, in precense and in love?

As we dream a new world, how do we come back into balance and harmony with the Earth and all the beings that dwell upon her.  How do we form a harmonious relationship with the Earth, the animal spirits, the tree spirits, the nature beings.  How do we energetically heal what has been?  And how do we Dream in a new way of being? 

Come discover the power that we all have within us, to bring about the change we so desire.  Create an instrument that will hold you through your process, like the steady heart beat of the mother.  A drum that will assist in bringing us back into right relationship with all beings that we share this beautiful planet with.

All Materials are supplied for a 16" Willow or Ash drum, with your choice of Kangaroo or Deer hide. (Please note that hide options are seasonal, and as such I will do the best to give you your preference, however your preference may not be available.)

There is also a choice for a 16" Oak or Rosewood hoop or an Egg Shaped 14 x 18" 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.

In this workshop we have the opportunity to create different drum sizes if you feel called.  Pleas contact me if you would like to discuss further.


Saturday 9:00am - 5:00pm 

Sunday 9:00am - 5:00pm 

Monday 9:30 - 2:00pm

Yummy wholesome Lunch is provided.

Morning/Afternoon tea and a range of teas are also provided.

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.  Making a drum requires a certain physical capacity.  If you have any injuries, back issues or other health concerns please discuss with me prior to purchasing a ticket.

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 a range of new tools and processes to keep you grounded, connected and in your power.
