Build your own shamanic drum

The Flemish Ardennes

A magical friend for life.

Building your own shamanic drum is a true feast! It is the birth of your drum, the union between your energy, the cosmic energy and the earth energy.

Invite the spirits, sand & oil the wooden frame, soak the skin and build your own shamanic drum. At the end of the weekend you have a new magical friend to take home with you and to enjoy.

🧸 Children welcome (+6)

Life-time warranty

Drum is for life, which is why I also give a life-time guarantee as long as Drum is with the builder. Builders can always contact with questions. I can give tips over the phone, but if that doesn’t offer a solution, some ‘repair’ work has to be done.
