Fri 19/8/22 - 2:00 pm to Sun 21/8/22 - 5:30 pm

August 19-21  &  August 22-24 -The price for this 3-day workshop is £555

with Gabriella Songbird & Heather Cowen

Come and join us as we set up the forge and meet the elements and elementals of the ancient craft of sound forging. Through these days and nights the dreaming will become manifest as fine tonal frequencies as you bring a new sounding instrument into existence. Co-creating with nature and the fine beings of sound and light, you will be fully assisted, supported and guided in the beauty of crafting a singing bowl or bell.

Workshop begins at 2pm on day one and complete by 5. 30 pm on day three.  You are welcome to choose one or both workshops!

What this price covers - teaching and full guidance and support in the craft of sound forging over three days of sound vibrational alchemy through regular sound sessions, personal facilitation and support throughout the process.

By the end of the workshop you will have forged your own sound instrument from brass, bronze or copper of a fine tonal frequency range which will be an instrument that can live as a companion to healing, to generational support, to planetary upliftment and the spiritual realms … an instrument that lives as a legacy for many generations into the future.

You will be supported to allow a new frequency that is available through you to come into embodiment as an instrument of sound.

The nourishment and care comes through the environment and the support team who will provide freshly prepared vegetarian food throughout the workshop. Two breakfasts, three lunches and two suppers will be prepared with as much local and fresh ingredients and joy as possible!

On site camping, showers and compost loos are available and included in the all round price. It may be also possible to bring your own van and park on site. Please check with us when booking.

What this does not cover - Materials and additional accommodation options.

The estimated amount for metal is between £15 - £35 for a three-day workshop, based on type and size of metal worked with.

There are a couple of other options available for accommodation if you’d rather not bring your own tent. Please let us know if you’d like to know the options.

There are also some local AirBnb style options in the neighbouring proximity if you’d rather not sleep on the land.
