The dreamcatcher has been a part of Native American culture for generations. It is a handmade object, traditionally made from a willow hoop, with a woven web decorated with sacred items such as feathers and beads.
Dreamcatchers are intended to protect you whilst you sleep. Positive dreams slip through the hole in the centre of the dream catcher, and glide down the feathers to the sleeping person below. The negative dreams get caught up in the web, and expire when the first rays of the sun strike them.
This is a relaxing and creative workshop where you will learn about the origins of the dreamcatcher and how to make and activate them.
Reclaimed bangles, ribbons and jewellery, feathers, threads and other bits and bobs will be available for you to use to make your dreamcatcher. You’re also welcome to bring along any threads, charms, ribbons etc that you’d like to use in your dreamcatcher.
Come join us and learn how to upcycle and reuse! Become part of the solution…
Refreshments, materials and equipment will be provided during the workshop. Spaces are limited and advance booking is essential to secure your place.
Tickets are £20
