Making a Shaman's Rattle
Saturdays, January 16 & 23, 2010 from 2 to 6pm, at Radiance in Lancaster
In this two part workshop participants will learn how to 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 that time 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 handle and whatever you will put inside your rattle. You may want to bring a journal to class.
Class will be held at Radiance, 9 W Grant St, Lancaster, PA, across the cobblestones from Central Market. Stop in or phone 717-290-1517 to register. Cost is $85.00 in advance.
