The first task involved concealing their key ring with twine, wool thread, or cotton thread, ensuring that the underlying metal was completely obscured.

Next, thread was artfully looped around the hoop, gradually forming the intricate web. Although it posed a challenge initially, with practice, the process became significantly easier.

Finally, the students adorned their dream catchers with ornamental beads and feathers, adding a final personal touch to their masterpieces. The results were beautiful!


Folklore and culture


Dream catchers are deeply rooted in Native American folklore and culture. According to legend, dream catchers originated with the Ojibwe (Chippewa) people, who believed that the night air was filled with both good and bad dreams. The purpose of a dream catcher was to capture the bad dreams and allow only the good dreams to pass through.


Dream catchers were traditionally hung above the bed or near a sleeping area to safeguard against nightmares and promote peaceful, undisturbed sleep. They were also seen as spiritual tools, helping to connect individuals with their dreams, visions, and the spiritual realm.
