Come and join us at Kupidabin Wilderness for a Native American Medicine Drum making workshop.
This is a one-day workshop where you will get to make a Native American Medicine Drum, using your own inner wisdom to birth your own sacred instrument, with love, respect and honour.
Learn how to build and create your very own healing Medicine Drum the traditional way, using authentic materials, including a 15" Hoop-Pine hoop and Deer rawhide.
Drum making is a powerful transformative experience, and is an ancient tradition of the Native American people. It helps to heal the whole of your life, allowing you to let go of things that don’t serve you anymore, making you whole and empowered. The Medicine Drum is used for healing, offering prayers and gratitude, ceremony, requests for information, and journeying. Tracy’s Medicine Drums feature a spiral design on the back, which has been channelled by her guides.
During our Medicine Drum making workshop we will:
- Create sacred space
- Journey to meet the deer who has gifted its hide for you
- Be given a message for your drum from the deer
- Give thanks through the offering of sacred herbs, for the gifts of this drum making
- Create your own drum from the deer hide. Cut out the head of your drum and the lacing
- Lace your drum together over the hoop
- Birth your drum
- At the end of the workshop you will receive a bag to carry your drum in, as well as instructions on how to care for your drum. You will also receive a beater, a hook to hang your drum up with whilst its drying and a life sparkle essence to assist you with any healing that has occurred during and after the drum making process.
Tracy makes drums for a Native American Indian Chief of the Blackfoot Sioux tribe. He has gifted her with the ‘drum-makers’ necklace that was handcrafted by his Aunt Woolita, almost 90 years ago.
