This weekend 2 night, small group experience on the stunning Argyll coast, is for spiritually aware souls who want to enjoy the deeply transformative and restorative feeling of playing and journeying with your own, personally hand-crafted shamanic (frame) drum, imprinted with your own energy.

“I would highly recommend this workshop with Dawn. She was welcoming and held a gentle and loving space throughout the drum birthing process. Dawn guided me with compassion and allowed my creativity to show which was a surprising experience. She connected us to each part of our drum and beater creating a unique connection with them. This was a highly transformative experience for me which is really hard to put in words. Thank you Dawn for the delicious food as well, and allowing us into your beautiful home and garden! I love my drum! J Regina, March 2023”

During this weekend retreat you will be birthing a 40cm/16inch (approx) frame drum covered with deer hide and a needle-felted drum beater made of wool to your design – no experience needed!

In the summer months you will be mostly working outside – weather permitting! We will retreat to the bell tent/outbuilding if the weather (or midges) dictate. At other times of the year we will mostly be indoors – as the weather in Argyll dictates!
Early-bird reduced fees when paid in full 1 month before the date of the retreat.
