Making my first drum

Posted by Masha on November 6, 2011 at 6:35 PM

I made my first ever shamanic drum yesterday, guided by Pat Dunnicliffe of Dunnwood Drums www.dunnwooddrums.com. It was hard work but a wonderful experience, and I can't wait for my new drum to dry out so that I could start playing it! 

I painted a few small picture of leaves of different trees on the inside of the wooden frame (pity you can't see them very well when the drum is completed!) and my boyfriend decorated his frame with two polar bears, a Tardis and the Rebel Alliance emblem from Star Wars!

It took a whole day and my thumb is still aching from the efforts to stretch the deer skin, but well worth it and I look forward to making another drum with Pat in not too distant future.

There are some pictures on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150365276615817.348658.670845816&type=1

I have now made my second drum, with Steven Ash as part of my Sacred Drumming Practitioner Course http://www.collegeofsoundhealing.co.uk/pages/dcurriculum.php
It has a beautiful deep sound, and making this drum was one of the most wonderful experiences in my life :-)
