Rattle Making

October 23rd and 30th

12pm to 5pm EST

Come join me for a Zoom workshop on how to create a sacred rattle from elk or horse hide…..

In this two-part workshop, participants will make a rawhide rattle from beginning to end. This workshop is for those who want to develop deeper shamanic skills and knowledge.The first day of the workshop will cover instruction on the parts of the rattle, the materials used to create the bulb, sewing and creating of your rawhide form.  We will take several shamanic journeys to find guidance about our personal rattles.  This first portion of the rattle needs to dry, so during the week between classes, you will find your handle and materials to put in it.When we meet again for the second day of the workshop, we will work on the actual assemblage of these parts into a working rattle. During this section of the workshop we will dedicate the rattle for its purpose, fill it, and attach the handle.Also covered in the workshop will be ways to work with your rattle and techniques for the care of your rattle.

All the materials will be provided except the sand to fill to filling to shape it and whatever you will put inside your rattle.

All materials will be mail ahead of the workshop. Registration is required at least a week ahead of time to insure your materials arrive on time. You can scan the Venmo QR code or the PayPal QR code to make a $175.00 payment to register for this work shop.

Tuition is $ 175 which includes shipping.
