Red Moon Medicine Drum Making Workshop

Rachael Crow courses, Drum Making, Workshops

Looking for a shamanic drum that’s as unique as you are?

Make your own medicine drum- join me at my hearth for a beautiful day of drum birthing, working with oracle cards, tuning into the natural materials of animal and tree, exploring the gorgeous surroundings of my home that includes sacred stones.
After 10 years of holding groups I’m now opening my home to small intimate circles, 1-1s and couples days, allowing for a deeper dive into the experience and time to share more of our visions, life experiences, healing…
Birthing your own drum is a one-of-a-kind experience! You’ll take home a personal medicine drum to last you a life time, so you can truly walk to the beat of your own drum!


At the moment I have no dates scheduled. Sign up to my newsletter for future dates.

“Red Moon Drums are created for the women who hold the Red Thread.
We honour our inner cycles, the blood of life, our menstruation, moon blood, Grandmother Moon and Mother Earth.
Our Red Moon Drums are awakening drums; we are awakened to our ancestors of the Red Thread, to the youngsters yet to walk this path, to the call of the great Mother Earth- to walk lightly upon her, care for and protect her.
The cross bound handle can be seen as the medicine wheel, the wheel of the seasons, the Celtic wheel or perhaps the seasons of a womans life. The Medicine of the 4 quarter points can lift you into a different rhythm, time and place!
As we play our Red Moon Drums we feel the songs of the ancient ones being awakened within us, deep memories stirring, the heartbeat of the land pulses though the drum and our veins.
The Red Moon Drum awakens us to remember to listen to the voices of the ancient ones, the witches, healers and midwives, all the ancient ones of this land….and our own body wisdom.
Through our Red Moon Drums we are made one with with the whole of womb-kind.
We are the Red Moon Drum Medicine Holders.” Rachael Crow

Spend a day in beautiful and magical West Wales, on the Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire border,  immersing yourself in the birthing of your medicine drum, tuning in with the natural materials, giving thanks and prayers as you use your hands, putting your love, energy and intent into this moon time medicine tool to create a truly special drum for yourself! 

The day will begin with a journey to connect with the energy of the deer, we will make the drums with intention and prayers, closing the day with a ceremony to connect our drums to our wombspace. 

Using natural and traditionally prepared, naturally dyed* deer hides and timbers you with birth a sacred drum. Hoops are crafted from Ash, the world tree. Beaters are made from locally coppiced wood, stuffed with raw sheeps wool.

Hides come from within the United Kingdom and are either from culled wild deer/stags or animals that have naturally died. The hide is a waste product so by using it we are honouring the animal. As a life long vegetarian I’ve wrestled with the ethics for a long time, in the end my calling to make drums and bring women to the heartbeat of our Mother was too strong! I source them as ethically as possible, supporting local crafts people.

*As with natural dying techniques, colours can vary.

All teaching, tools and materials are provided.

Suitable for those used to crafting and complete beginners! 

£100 booking fee will be required, pay here.
