Make an 18" ELK Hide drum or 16" DEER Hide Drum
Sunday, August 27th, 2023
11am to 4pm

You have the option of what animal medicine you would like to work with, as well as the size drum you will make.

Come into a sacred ceremonial setting with Master drum maker Katherine Skaggs to make your own hand drum in ancient style. Katherine Skaggs will provide all materials, demonstration, and instruction to make your drum, within the setting of sacred shamanic ceremony. Within this ceremonial drum making you will have the opportunity to infuse your drum making process and the drum itself with prayers, blessings and intentions.

The drum is a beautiful instrument of the heart. It can be used for personal pleasure, shamanic healing work, drum circle gatherings, and shamanic journey work. The melodic beat moves you into trance-like, inward, meditative states for accessing wisdom, guidance, and the place of calm of the heart center.

In shamanic healing work the drum is known to bring in a powerful vibration that clears blocks in the energy bodies as well as opens the spiritual heart center. A practitioner may assist another in journeying to meet their spirit guides and totem animals for wisdom and healing, or may journey for the them. Drumming can move one out of the linear, left brain, into the frequency of peace obtained in meditation, which is also associated with the right brain.

You will leave with a finished drum and drum beater.
