Framed Drum Making Workshop

Drawing on the magic of the framed drum, that has, since the beginning of time beaten with the heart of the earth. We will gather together to share the cross cultural magic of the framed drum, drawing from my own Celtic European ancestry, and looking at how the drum is used for ceremony and medicine. You will meet the spirit guides within to help you birth this drum into the physical realm. This is a personal journey of awakening and respect.

I have been working with the plants and processes of nature based art for the past 10 years. The seeds planted in my childhood spent roaming the Northern Territory bush are now growing into these spiritual sharing’s of process. Through creative practice, exhibitions, performance and teaching, I now share the tools of the earth.

We will work with Kangaroo Skin and Paulownia wood over two days to create these drums. Men and Women are welcome, this is a shared space of the masculine and feminine.
