Medicine Drum Making Workshops

This 1.5 day workshop is designed to support you in crafting your own sacred medicine drum.

We will be connecting with the spirit of the kangaroo whose hide we craft the drum, journeying with our birth stories, how this shows up in our creative process and weaving our personal medicine into our drum as we sit and craft on the land.

Women have been drummers for a long, long time. Often when we first hear the drum it can feel so familiar and crafting our own drum can feel like a remembering. 

The frame drum is a pan cultural instrument and sacred tool meaning that it can be found in every continent around the world. Layne Redmond's powerful l book "When the drummers were women" gives so much evidence to this with countless ancient paintings, sculptures and art of when playing the frame drum.
