This is a 16 inch shamanic drum made from Reindeer rawhide and is a really special drum in that it was birthed at the time of the Moon of Winds Full Moon in March 2021. Our medieval ancestors called this moon the Moon of Winds in recognition of the winds that come this time of year in the UK.
The hoop is English Ash waxed with bees wax from rescued bees. We have painted a wind motif inside the hoop and we have set a Green Moonstone crystal in the handle. The tension ring is wrapped in a suede and the fluffy fabric finishes off the handle so that it is really comfortable to hold.
The energy of Green Moonstone
Moonstone is a stone of mystery, and is associated with the feminine because of its ability to enhance the intuitive side of the mind. It has been used for centuries to connect with the energy and power of the moon. Green Moonstone has a calming energy that helps us ‘go with the flow’ and balances the interlect of the mind with the wisdom of the heart.

The energy of Reindeer
The Reindeer has an incredible ability to preserve in difficult environments, and across great distances too, some travelling as far as 3000 miles in one season. Their energy teaches us that great things are possible in our lives. In their surefootedness they can support us to utilize our internal gifts so that we can be as equally sure-footed in any situation, enabling us to easily walk through any challenges which may come our way as we walk our path to realize our dreams.
About the making of this drum
We make our drums from our home on the edge of the West Pennine Moors in the northwest of England. We create the drums in sacred space each drum is birthed through ceremony, over mugwort incense.
We also take great care in the sourcing of our materials. The Red Deer hide used to make this drum is from Scotland and the timber for the Ash hoop is sourced from UK ash and is crafted by a local carpenter in Wigan. The wood has a layer of bees wax to bring out it’ natural grain. The wax is from bees which have been rescued.
