Learn how to create your own dreamcatcher, a traditional art in many Native American tribes. Create one with a spring theme to celebrate rebirth and renewal, using such items as flowers. A properly completed dreamcatcher represents the four elements that are necessary for sustaining life: air, water, earth, fire. Learn the techniques for constructing an entire dreamcatcher from the inner web to adding beads and ornamentation. The symbolic aspects and meaning of the dreamcatcher parts will also be discussed; each one, a unique and creative expression of your personality or outlook, and yours to take home. Materials fee is $7 payable to the instructor at the beginning of class.
