This is a 16 inch shamanic drum made from Red Deer rawhide and is a really special drum in that it was birthed at the time of the lunar eclipse and January 2020. Our distant ancestors called this moon the Wolf Moon, going back to a time when haunting howl of the wolf would travel through the frost laden valleys piercing the stillness of winter.
This drum is made from Red Deer hide and the hoop is English Ash waxed with bees wax from rescued bees. We have painted a wolf motif inside the hoop and we have set a Carnelian 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 Wolf
When we look at the inner qualities Wolf brings as an animal spirit guide it is around instinct, intelligence and an appetite for freedom. Wolf is a symbol of wildness, and the energy these drums will hold is about stepping into your authentic self, reigniting your personal power and finding your inner wild twin.
The energy of Carnelian: courage & confidence
The Carnelian crystal brings with it an influx of life force, creative energies and assertive will. If you are looking to build confidence, courage, passion and power within yourself then this is the drum for you. It is of great help to the gentle souls who wish for good things but have difficulty making them happen. It brings with it the inspiration for increasing zest for living and the willingness to take risks inherent in all strong actions.

The energy of Red Deer
When we encounter the Red Deer in the wild, our breath catches and we are transfixed by their graceful features and delicate movements. We can draw on their energy to give us the power to deal with challenges with grace. As Red Deer holds a real gentleness, we can be sensitive and intuitive was we walk our path. We can also hold onto vigilance and also adaptability, with the ability to change direction quickly should we need to. Just as the deer has an uncanny sense of where to find the green freshness earth provides, we can ask the deer within ourselves to seek out our inner treasures.
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.
