***THIS IS A PRIVATE WORKSHOP***

We will be making both the laced and the pegged style drums at this workshop. This listing is to make the type of drum commonly seen in shamanic practice where the head is pulled around the frame with a contiguous lacing which then makes the handle on the back. There are two styles of drum offered for this workshop. Both are my design and are non-traditional. If you want the pegged, Northern European style drum, please choose the other listing for this workshop.


The workshop comes with everything you need to make your chosen drum and a drum beater. A soft suede handle wrap with instructions is available to take home and apply when the drum is dry. Hides available are red stag deer (hart), horse, elk or moose. All drums will be made on hardwood reinforced cedar hoops made in our wood shop.


The Harmonic Shamanic drum has 15 lacings creating a five spoke handle. This arrangement represents the four elements + spirit (among many other things). It was created to give pagan people a drum with their own magic and symbolism rather than using the traditional native American type. It is also more comfortable to hold and, because of the odd number of lacings, it is very balanced and creates harmonic over and undertones along with a very nice voice. This is extremely distinct with horse drums, which can create celestial vibrations, but carries through whatever hide is used.

The Nine Worlds drum has 18 lacings with a triple three / nine spoke handle and was created specifically for Norse, Heathen & Celtic work. It is a boomier drum with a more direct sound. It is a little more complicated to make, but well worth the effort.
