Dream Catchers

Next Saturday workshop 3rd August. This event is now closed for bookings.

Create and personalise your very own dream catcher.

As with all our workshops, this one will begin with a relaxing meditation to set the intent of the dreams you want to catch, whether for yourself or for someone close to you.

By setting a loving intent during the creative process and then giving your creation to someone close to you, this creates a loving reminder of your relationship each time your that person looks at your dream catcher. Similarly, by setting your own personal intent, and having your dream catcher hanging where you can look at it often creates a loving message to yourself.

We will show you the basics of making a dream catcher. It is really quite easy and once you have knowledge of the basics, you will be hooked on creating and embellishing many dream catchers for yourself, family and friends in the future.

Everything you need to make your dream catcher – hoops, ribbon, feathers, beads etc, will be supplied. However, if you have any special beads from old jewellery or gifts, or old lace doilies passed down from family members, please feel free to bring these along with you, as they will add even more meaning to your creation.

Time : 2pm – 4pm
Cost : $50

Suitable for:  This workshop is for adults, however, teenagers and adolescents are welcome with an accompanying adult.  Pricing is the same for all attendees regardless of age.
