ABOUT// Joie de Winter Hand makes bespoke healing Harps in London from the branch to the finished piece. Joie is focused on creating a unique series of 13 Harps for 13 women. She works very intuitively with each women and the vision is to form a harp healing sisterhood that can work together in bringing healing through this beautiful tool. Each women works with the harp in their own way, and there will be gatherings and opportunities to co-create and support one another growth. One lady will use the harp to help women find their voice in circles, another may be focused on healing the water, another working with womb healing and birthing.
INTENTION // The intention of making these harps is to open the heart, uplift spirit, to cultivate compassion and balance back in this world. These harps are for those who are drawn to sharing healing sounds and music for themselves, family, community, and the earth. Original design comes from Mexico inspired by Harps from Africa Gabon. In Gabon the harp music was played to uplift the spirits and heal the communities. The harps were made with prayer and are to be seen as the goddess themselves.
These harps have 13 strings, from E to E. Made of ethical animal goat skin, seasoned wood base, tuning pegs, nylon strings, danish oil and Bry wax finish polished. They also come with a tuning wrench and small introduction lesson on hand over. You can get harp bags made and sacred burnt artwork for an extra cost. The art work can be designed by you, a collaboration or left for Joie to create.
THE MAKING PROCESS // Joie is working closely with each person and consciously inviting people to embrace all the healing aspects of this harp, from the medicine of the wood, skin and sounds. Each harp is tailor made with details available. You can add crystals, sacred burnt artwork for added cost. Joie will share information about the wood and trees they are made from. She works also with the moon cycles and sings through out her process.

STORY// Joie had the gift of living in Mexico for a year studying medicine music and sound healing, whilst there she fell in love with this harp and the sound. She had one made and has been playing this instrument back in London in women circles, singing circles, ceremonies, for babies, pregnant mothers, for the dyeing, live poetry performance, land ceremonies, sound healing journeys. She noticed that the harp alters people to meditative states and has a powerful impact on shifting energy. It brings people back into the heart. She began to notice how people were drawn to the harps and wanted to have their own so she set to birthing them. She hand makes harps in London and is open to travel and do residencies abroad. I wish you a beautiful journey with your harp, it will open many doors and help you connect more deeply to spirit. My intention is that it brings healing to life.
