Arts & DIY
Catch some dreams with our dreamcatcher workshop. Using natural materials, learn to create your very own native dreamcatchers. We will explore the tradition and stories surrounding this piece of Native American culture.
Make a single large one or create multiple levels. Learn the traditional weaving or find your own original style. Finish off your piece with a variety of feathers from Nicole a.k.a. Lady Bird's massive feather collection and add in some beads to bedazzle! Make one for yourself or for a great handmade holiday gift.
