Faline's creative Kids Workshop is an hour-long session where children can learn how to make a unique dreamcatcher from home-woven willow hoops, embroidery thread, beads, and feathers. This fun and creative activity is perfect for kids who enjoy quiet handcrafts with beautiful materials and would love to make a piece of art to hang up in their own space or give to a loved one.
Dreamcatchers have a longstanding tradition that originated from the Ojibwe people, an Indigenous tribe in North America. They were used to protect sleepers, especially children, from bad dreams, nightmares, and evil spirits. Native Americans believed that at night, the air was filled with dreams, both good and bad. They hung the dream catcher over their beds, ensuring that daylight could reach it for the sun to burn the caught nightmares in the morning..
This entirely hands-on and not at all messy session is perfect for children to engage in a fun activity and improve their crafting skills. Please note that this is a drop-off workshop, exclusively for kids to participate in.
This workshop is proudly sponsored by the Riverside Community Trust. Please contact Tanja (at firstname.lastname@example.org) for any workshop questions or to discuss sponsorship options.
