Workshop on the Isle of Sheppy, Great Britain

Usually we have a drumming circle the night before the drum making to let people experience the different feelings created by the size and skin of drums.

The drum making itself usually takes about three hours when we begin from a kit. When we start from scratch, we allow a full day to construct the drum.

 

Many workshops include participants making their own individual drums, while others, such as the one shown here, pool everyone’s energy to make a larger, ceremonial drum for the group.

 

Both the “mechanics” and the ceremonial are taught, and the energies of the different animals and trees are covered in depth.

 

Rattle making is also often included in the weekend, and occasionally we add dream catcher making.
