Here’s what some women have shared about their experience of making a drum..
Making my drum was a deeply powerful experience on many levels. It was lovely to reflect inwards, nurtured by the company of women and to work with my hands and heart to create. At times it was challenging and the space held by Talulah and the group allowed unravelling to happen and insights to be explored. The process resulted in a beautiful drum, a better understanding of myself, and the beginning of a journey into drumming. I am grateful for this experience, and for the women who shared the journey.

I knew I wouldn’t just be making a drum and I knew the process had something to do with unravelling my birth journey but I wasn’t sure what to expect. Sitting in circle and connecting with self spirit and the other women was a given and I was eagerly anticipating this workshop if only for the space and permission the check out of the profane.
In telling my stories of my birth menarche and giving birth, common threads revealed themselves. The stories I thought were my stories were re-woven with this deeper understanding into a rich and complex tapestry that revealed my creative process and long held patterns in thought and behaviour. Talulah’s advice was to listen to what came up as I made my drum. It was very obvious, and almost made me giggle. Those same thoughts and behaviours were playing out as I wove. I noticed them, acknowledged them and then kept going without acting out in the way I am so used to.
It was uncomfortable but soon very freeing. I had to trust my inner judgement. The constant seeking for external validation which has been one of the threads in my tapestry was n’t going to be ok today. I had to trust myself and be my own validation. Again Talulah intuitively protected and nurtured this process. I came away with a drum so beautiful. She ‘looks’ like me and I am so proud of her. She is a tool for growth and healing and this is woven into her very being. The concept of creating a physical object as an artefact to elicit deeper self-understanding was very powerful.
