Create your own shamanic drum & beater

Your drum

During this residential weekend you will be birthing a 40cm/16inch (approx) frame drum covered with deer hide or goat skin.

You will also make a needle felted drum beater to accompany your drum.

We may be working outside –  weather permitting! We will retreat to the bell tent/outbuilding/indoors if the weather (or midges) dictate.

The weekend

Accommodation is in the Community owned Pedals & Paddles apartment which is just under a mile away from my home where the retreat takes place.

Breakfast is self-catering with all supplies provided in your accomodation.

Drinks and snacks are included during the day.

Starting after the evening meal on Friday and working through to around 9pm is your preparation time. 

Then from 9:30am-5:30pm approx (with a 2 hour lunch to enjoy walks on the beach) on Saturday you will be birthing your drum

Saturday evening will be more relaxed.... though you will still be creating!

On Sunday morning you'll be finishing your beater before we awaken your drum through ceremony.

We finish late morning when you'll be free to depart or if you wish you can stay for a light lunch before your journey home.
