Made by You Dreamcatcher
Dreamcatchers originated from indigenous cultures in North America, primarily the Ojibwe and Lakota nations. The Ojibwe word for dreamcatcher is asabikeshiinh, meaning "spider."
Legend has it that in ancient times, a mythical spider woman taught people to weave a web-like object from natural materials such as twigs, leather, and feathers, to preserve good dreams and dispel nightmares. In modern times, dreamcatchers have evolved to be a symbol of protection and comfort for people of all cultures.
We have created a dreamcatcher workshop in our store on Main and 12th to help revive the age-old practice of dream appreciation.
10% of the workshop fee will be donated to Kílala Lelum (Downtown Eastside Urban Indigenous Health and Healing Cooperative).
Our friendly staff will assist you in selecting from a variety of materials, and provide hands-on, step-by-step instructions on how to design and construct your own one-of-a-kind dreamcatcher, either for yourself or as a heartfelt gift for a loved one.
The process of making a dreamcatcher is creative and relaxing, and the outcome of this reflective activity is a beautiful and unique object enchanted with the labour of your love.
The time to make a dreamcatcher varies depending on the maker's dexterity. Based on the recommended age groups below, it generally takes about 30 minutes to an hour to complete.
- Small (3" diameter) - recommended for 6-10 years of age
- Medium (5" diameter) - recommended for 10-16 years of age
