In your hands you hold the skin of a once living, sacred deer.  

You hold the timber drum frame from a once standing mighty tree.

Expect transformation as you enter the deep and ancient process of bringing new life back to the animal and tree, transforming them into your instrument of power:

The Ritual Drum

There’s a limit of 8 women only on this powerfully transformative process.

Here’s what the cost of $785 includes:

  • One complete unbleached deer rawhide
  • Nine sided solid timber drum frame, hand made by Jane
  • Vegetable dyed kangaroo leather trim
  • All other materials and tools to make your drum and hand crafted drum beater
  • Morning and afternoon tea
  • Individual tuition and guidance
  • Instruction sheet on Care of Your Drum
  • Playing the fundamentals of the Ritual Drum
  • Post workshop follow up


You will find two sticks – one that becomes the handle of your drum, and one for your beautiful drum beater
