It is believed that dreamcatchers originated with the Objiwe Chippewa tribe, and over time have become a shared cultural craft among all Native American nations today. These decorative talismans contain a woven web bound inside a hoop, adorned with beads and feathers. It is believed that dreamcatchers protect sleeping people (especially children) by capturing bad dreams and allowing only good ones to pass through.
In this workshop, you will learn how to construct a dreamcatcher from start to finish using various colorful materials, all of which are provided for you by the instructor, Emily Cammisa. Most dreamcatchers can be completed within 1 to 2 hours, though be aware that children 9 and under may require extra help from parents or guardians with weaving their webs and attaching feathers, beads, or charms.
No reservation needed. Come by yourself or bring a friend!
There are three sizes to choose from: Small (1" diameter) for $10, Medium (3.5” diameter) for $16, or Large (5.5” diameter) for $20. Also available beyond the base materials are various charms, natural stone beads, and shells ranging from $0.10 to $3 each. Once completed, you can find a special place to hang your dreamcatcher (preferably near your bed) and enjoy the good dreams to come.
