The cost per person is $10.00 plus tax, which includes all the materials and hands-on instruction. Open to both groups and individuals, advanced reservations are required the attend the class.
The traditional dream catcher was intended to protect a sleeping individual from negative dreams, while letting positive dreams through. The positive dreams would slip through the hole in the center of the dream catcher and glide down the feathers to the sleeping person below. The negative dreams would get caught up in the web and expire when the first rays of the sun struck them.
The dream catcher has been a part of Native American culture for generations. A primary element of the Native American dream catcher relates to the tradition of the hoop. Some Native Americans of North America held the hoop in the highest esteem because it symbolized strength and unity. Many symbols started around the hoop, particularly dream catcher.
