Product Description

Rattle Making Workshop with Patti Two Ravens

History of Rattles Rattles have been used in ceremony, performance and personally by Indigenous people across Turtle Island. The sound of the rattle reminds us of the healing power of rain, chaos of the Storm, the nurturing and life-giving Nature of Water, and the power contained in every one of us. Traditionally, rattles would be filled with rocks, precious stones, seeds and sometimes teeth or small bones to create the sound within. Rattles were often used to pray for and honor the Rains for the sound and connection between Earth and Sky. In gentle or healing ceremony, elders and medicine people would sometimes opt for the Rattle in place of the drum for gentle healing for Women and Children. Women, in some traditions, would carry the Rattle in place of the Drum on their Moon Time or if their teachings passed the Drum onto the men.

Join Patti Two Ravens in the creation of your own personal rawhide rattle. Patti will be ordering kits for you and demonstration/facilitating the beginning process with you. After your rattle has dried for two days or longer, you will finish on your own as this type of rattle making is a process over the course of a few days.

You may wish to use a stick of your own or use the one provided in the kit. You will be provided with pebbles and corn kernels to use for making your rattle’s voice. You will be placing your own creative energy into the rattle at every stage of the process and making it your own.

Patti will also demonstrate the second phase for you and help you in preparing your sticks, and you will be provided instructions on finishing the basic rattle. As always, she will be available to support you in that process.

Rattle choices will be Elk, Buffalo, or Moose. Please choose which you prefer at time of registration by using the message section in the registration or by sending and email to pgile1@nycap.rr.com.
