Shamanic drum maker, Jonathan Weekes, offers group Shamanic Drum Birthing Ceremonies across the UK,

Shamanic Drums to purchase from the online shop as well as Bespoke Drum orders, and high quality

and highest quality, ethically sourced Drum Making Supplies.

All drums are made in the traditional way, using lacing cut from the same hide to keep the spirit of the animal within the drum, and within prayer and ceremony to honour the spirit of the animal and the tree that gave of themselves to bring this sacred medicine tool into being.

Your own drum is a guide, healer, teacher and friend, that guides you on a special journey of inner exploration.

About our drums…

Our shamanic drums are used by followers of the shamanic path for journeying, for music, for healing, for drum circles and for the great feeling of empowerment and connection with spirit that they enable.

All of the shamanic drums  are birthed in ceremony, honouring the spirit of the animals and trees that they are made from, and all materials for the drums are ethically sourced.

Our shamanic drums and medicine tools are made with an intention that they become powerful teachers, guides, healers and friends to those who use them and an important part of their spiritual growth and exploration.
