Dreamcatcher Making! 12 December

On Wednesday we had a delightful morning and afternoon making dreamcatchers!

I demonstrated first how to make the netting and then assisted the students to do their own (with some needing more assistance than others!)

Using our box of materials, beads, shells and feathers we then decorated our dreamcatchers, with some beautiful results!

Carlos showed us just one of the many things they can now do with their dreamcatcher…

Previously students have given them as a gift (often to their homestay families!), hung them in their vans before going off traveling, decorated their bags with them, and taken them home as a souvenir of their time in Byron! Or they can use them for their original purpose and simply hang them in their rooms to protect them from bad dreams!

Morning Dreamcatcher Making! 12 December

On Wednesday we made everyone’s favourite – Dreamcatchers!

 

We started off with a wire ring, which we had to wrap, using various bits and pieces from our large box of materials, threads, wools and twine.

The next step then was to make the web part of the dreamcatcher. We watched a video and then I showed them in more detail, how to go about making their own. It looks a bit tricky but is surprisingly easy once you get into it. It is also very therapeutic! ūüôā

Then it was time to add some embellishments to our webs. We had lots of beautiful bits and bobs – like feathers, beads, shells…

I was very impressed with the final results!

We followed a video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vmtkc7FOWLw&t=3s) to get us started, then the students created their own, with me on hand to help!

There was plenty of different fabrics, threads, beads and feathers for the students to use, so they were all able to make theirs completely unique!

Entertainment was provided with some beautiful singing from Eric, Lorene and Sacha, my particular favourite being their rendition of Queen’s Break Free!

I was very impressed by the different ideas everyone had for their dreamcathcers and the brilliant results!
