About the Event

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

In this Weekend Workshop we will go on a journey to create a Shamanic Medicine drum.  On Saturday 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 Sunday we craft our beaters and we have the opportunity to awaken our drums, and discover some of the many ways in which we can work with our drums.  

All Materials are supplied for a 16" drum and beater.

There is a choice of Ash, Willow, Mulberry, Oak or Rosewood hoops (depending on availablity) and a choice of Kangaroo or Deer hide (depending on availablity).   Please visit our "Drum Totem Energies" page under "On Offer" for more info on the different energies of the trees and animals.

All ceremonial herbs are also included as well as all materials for your beater.

I am now also offering some other options for hoops.

16" Ash, Willow or Mulberry - Included in price

16" Oak hoop - add $50

16" Rosewood - add $50

14 x 18" egg shaped - add $50

Please make sure to select your prefered wood type and either kangaroo or deer when booking.  I will do my best to give you your first choice, however depending on availability there may be limited options.  


Saturday 9:00am - 5:00pm 

Sunday 9:30am - 2:00pm

Both Lunch and Morning and Afternoon Tea are provided.

Please let us know if you have any allergies, are vegeratian or vegan.

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 start at 9am, and try to be finished by 5:00.  We have a maximum of 8 participants to ensure that everyone receives the support they need in creating their Medicine Drum.  

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.  Drum bags and warmers and  ceremonial smudge will be available on the day for purchase. (Eftpos available)
