Why is sacred?
"Because we are creatinG together"
My name is Tamas Schrek. I live in Hungary, Budapest. I am creating shaman drums, frame drums and other percussion instruments for 8 years. This summer you give me an opportunity to make a drum making workshop in the Sun Festival.
The following gallery includes some of the drums that we could create together during the week. All the drums have different personalities. I would like to inspire you to use your creativity and imagination before we start working on your drum. During the workshop we will go through the major parts of shamanic drum making. Finally you will create an instrument which will perfectly mirror your inner qualities.
We plan and finish the handle. It can be made of raw hide, leather, antler, bone or wood. I encourage you to bring something you would like to build into the handle. Can be a stone for instance or your power object. We might go out to the forrest and collect materials for your handle. We also make a fitting drumstick to your drum.
