Through storytelling and craft Harmony will share the knowledge of weaving dreamcatchers to honour the teachings gifted to her by her Anishinaabe grandmother. With deep reverence for the traditional techniques learned as a child, after moving to the island Harmony was inspired to evolve her craft and teachings to incorporate the traditional plants & materials native to Vancouver Island. Join us for a beautiful afternoon sharing creativity, learning ancient wisdom and connecting with our earth.

Sunday, September 23rd 2018, from 1:00pm-3:30pm
Location: Fireweed Farm
Learn to weave a beautiful sacred object of your own creation! Harmony will guide you on a informative hands-on journey in the art and lore of the dreamcatcher. Utilizing traditional techniques, as well as contemporary artistic adaptations that incorporate wildcrafted, found, repurposed and collected materials, you will learn to create your own one-of-a-kind dreamcatcher infused with meaning and intention.
The workshop will begin with a welcome circle to gather inspiration and hold space for our collective creative energies. While weaving, we will discuss and honour the legends and tradition of this craft, as well as the spiritual significance. We will close the workshop by smudging our dream catchers and giving thanks.
All supplies to make your dreamcatchers are provided for during the workshop. You may also wish to bring any personal treasures, beads, trinkets, etc that they may wish to incorporate into their dreamcatcher or share with others.
