Shamanic Drum Making Workshop – Iceland

July 13 @ 10:30 am - July 14 @ 5:30 pm

SHAMANIC TRIBAL HAND DRUM MAKING WORKSHOP

Nina Wolf Feather Björg welcomes Daithi Dubh, Conscious Dreamer for this 2 day workshop that will give you a hands-on experience in making your own tribal drum.

At the end of it all you will take away your own specialized, designed, and birthed drum ready for use. The knowledge you will gain in drum making as well as some Shamanic practice while spending 2 days with Daithi Dubh is priceless. Daithi has recently relocated to the USA so this may be your only opportunity this year to attend one of his workshops here in Iceland.

Workshop Specifics:

Journey to gather your intention for your drum, Learn about what it takes to start a drum from ‘scratch’. Choose a section of the hide you wish to use for your drum, cut it along with the lacing and ready it for soaking, Make your own beater, *Bring a special piece of wood (min. 1-1/2″ thick and 12″ long), learn how to lathe it, stitch the beater head leather, stuff it and decorate it, Prepare your rim with special engraving, your name, date, or symbols that mean something to the power of your drum, Stretch the soaked hide over the wooden drum rim and bind it with the hide lacing. This sounds much easier then it is, but there is a process to do it right and Daithi will guide you through that, Learn how best to care for your drum to keep it in the best condition and vibration.

Space is limited.

COST & DEPOSIT
Reserve your space for the 2 day event with a non-refundable deposit of €75 no later than June 1st 2019. This amount may be forwarded to another workshop event, should an emergency arise and you are unable to attend.

Total cost for the event will depend greatly on the particulars of the drum you wish to create. All available skins are from wild animals with healthy organic lives, which gives their hides great variability for vibration and sound. The spirit of the animal lived in its true environment, not farmed, so the life lives magically in the hide. It continues to live and be honored in the drums made from their essence.

16″ Ash or Oak rim
