Kits for Making Your Own Rawhide Drums, Rattles and More
 
 

Kits for Making Drums, Rattles, Dream Catchers with Free Instructions by Gaia's WorkshopI am in love with the idea of making my own shamanic and magickal tools and supplies.  I believe that putting our own energy into our tools makes them that much more powerful.  Of course, I make them for other people as well, but I always encourage my customers to put their own energy into their drums, rattles and other tools by painting, decorating or even just stroking them regularly.

I also believe that I cannot make drums for every person on the planet, and that knowledge should always be shared.  To this end, I will be posting complete video and written instructions for many of the items I make. 

This will be a long-term effort as doing the videos and instructions is time consuming.  If you are interested in making something you do not see listed, let me know -- perhaps you can be my test subject...

The kits below contain everything you need to make your project with the exception of tools and common household items.  Check the instructions, there is a list of everything you need at the beginning of each.  Please allow a week to ten days for delivery to allow for drying and shipping time.  Quantity discounts are available to Teachers, Group Leaders, Shamanic Groups, Drum Circles, Covens, etc.

 



Drum Kits

Drum Kits come with a hoop, pre-cut and pre-punched rawhide head, hand-cut rawhide lacing, and supplies to make either a pouch or standard beater.  You will need sharp scissors and a stick for your beater.

Red Stag Deer

Represented in Neolithic cave paintings 40,000 years ago in Europe, the deer has been an important helper to humans worldwide.  Deer represents love and circulation. Deer drums are light to medium in color and have an extremely resonant tone with sustained harmonics.  The deer drum is associated with the heart chakra and carries a feminine energy.

About the hoops:

Maple is common in both Europe and North America. It is considered a tree of balance, wisdom and prosperity.  The life cycle of the Maple exemplifies the turning of the seasons.  Maple is used to make many things including musical instruments, and is considered a tonewood, which is a wood that carries sound waves well.  It is a hard wood with a bright sound.  These hoops are machine made 10-ply and are heavier but extremely durable.

Deodar Cedar is a variety of cedar that is found naturally in India and the Middle East but has become common world wide.  Like all cedars, it carries the energy of cleansing and protection.  Cedars have been used worldwide for everything from making temple doors to weaving clothing, The name Deodar translates in Sanskrit to “God’s Tree” and it is revered on the Indian subcontinent as a particularly divine tree and is sacred to Shiva.  Ancient sages lived in Deodar forests.  It is the national tree of Pakistan.  The hoops are made of a single piece of wood, steamed and wrapped, and are strong and light-weight. Available soon for drum kits.
