Sourced from an organic farm in California, these plants have been used for thousands of years to create these most sacred of medicine tools. We will be also learning about the materials involved and picking the right stones for the inside that gives the rattle their distinctive sound and energy and covering other materials that rattles can be made from alongside embellishing techniques and their traditional historical use in ceremonies from many different cultures.
