Create your own Dreamcatcher! Native Americans believe the air is filled with both good and bad dreams. Historically, Dream Catchers were hung in the lodge and on a baby’s cradle board. According to legend, the good dreams pass through the center hole, float down the feathers to the sleeping person. The bad dreams, not knowing the way, get tangled in the web and perish in the light of dawn.

In this workshop, Honey will teach you the magical and calming art of dreamcatcher making. You will learn the traditional weaving techniques for the outer structure and inner web as well as more abstract approaches to make something totally unique. Each participant will create their own dreamcatcher by choosing a basic hoop structure, designing their inner web, and adorning the web and bottom with feathers, ribbons, beads, and more. We will discuss other materials, techniques, and ideas that can be used to make future dreamcatcher creations. No previous experience is necessary.

Vine hoops, sinew, crystals, beads and feathers will be provided. Some larger adorning objects like crystals, etc. will be available for purchase. We encourage you to BYOT (Bring Your Own Trinkets). Personal objects and talismans like beads, feathers, crystals, etc. that have a deeper meaning for you help to make your dreamcatcher more powerful and connected to who you are.

Pre-Registration is required, and space is limited.
$35 per person or 2 people for $60
