Workshop: Dreamcatchers: Saturday, March 19th, 12-2pm: Bewitchingly beautiful with a rich cultural history, dreamcatchers are the ultimate home decor item as well as a powerful protective talisman. First made by the Ojibwe people, dreamcatchers were later adopted by many Native American tribes and are seen as a symbol of unity linking the nations. The folklore says that dreamcatchers ensnare bad dreams and only let the good ones flow through. Students will recieve all supplies for this workshop, but you are welcome to bring in any special stones, knick-knacks, or feathers if you want to personalize your dreamcatcher further. Savannah, the instructor, will also be answering questions about symbolism in dream interpretation.
