Arty Crafty Adult Workshop
Learn to weave a Dreamcatcher hosted by Nicky Samuel!
Our theme for the month is Māori Myths and Legends, and just like the net that Maui created to try and slow the sun, you’ll be able to weave a different type of net to make a beautiful gift.
Have you ever wondered about those mysterious, dangly, feathery things, that look abit like a spider’s web you see at craft fairs or in gift shops are? They’re called dreamcatchers.
The meaning of dreamcatchers and the beliefs surrounding them originate from Native American cultures. The dreamcatcher is a protective talisman that is used to protect people from nightmares and bad dreams. The charm was used for young children and hung above their beds.
They believed that both good and bad dreams fill the air at night. The dreamcatcher acts like a spider’s web by trapping the bad dreams while allowing the good ones to filter through. The bad dreams caught in the web get destroyed when the sunlight of morning arrives, while the good dreams filter down through the feathers and gently reach the sleeping person below.
