Sue Ann welcomes you to join her in this once a year workshop to create an all natural dreamcatcher gathered from fall's bounty.
Dreamcatchers are arts and crafts of the Native American people. Originally these were woven from natural elements like twigs, sinew and feathers by the grandfathers and grandmothers of a tribe to hang above the cradle board of the newborn children. It was believed the web of the dreamcatcher would allow good dreams through and trap the bad dreams, helping baby find a peaceful sleep. Hang your natural dreamcatcher in your bedroom to improve the quality of your sleep or use it as a beautiful wall hanging.
We'll be doing our own version of a dreamcatcher created from nature in this 3-hour workshop beginning with a (weather permitting*) walk. Participants will mindfully gather their own natural materials to create a unique and personalized dreamcatcher. Meet at 9 am at Richmond Park, dressed for an outdoor walk, to collect your items. The park is located at 1101 RICHMOND NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49504. After the walk we will drive the short distance to our Soulistic Sisters Studio to begin creating our dreamcatchers.
If you prefer to skip the morning nature walk, and will have gathered some of your own fall materials to decorate with, (acorns on sticks, leaves, flowers, feathers, etc) then please show up at the studio around 9:45 am to begin creating with the rest of the group. And please alert us ahead of time if that is your plan so we are not waiting for you at Richmond.
Whether you take the nature walk with us or not, begin collecting items you might want to use as soon as you come across something interesting– and bring them along with you. In the spirit of keeping it Au Natural, let’s use only things found in nature. All other necessary materials will be provided.
*In the event of rain or predicted rain, Sue Ann will be in touch via email and likely will pre-gather a selection of natural materials to decorate with.
