A Spring Equinox wild making workshop, in which we will explore the symbolism of the webbed Dream Catcher in indigenous cultures and learn simple processes of threading, wrapping and binding in order to create your own unique, personal Dream Catcher from natural objects and re-cycled beads. Experience how repetitive, creative processes can become a meditation and how the intention of the maker can feed into that which is made. As well as being a beautiful object, hanging a hand made dream catcher above your bed can be a powerful way to connect more deeply with your dreamtime.
All materials provided. You are also welcome to bring any favourite natural materials you have collected elsewhere. No previous making experience necessary.
Please bring lunch to share and a flask of something warm to drink. We will have a fire to sit and make around. I will also have my campervan to take refuge in if necessary and to make warm drinks and heat food in. Please layer up in warm, waterproof clothing.

This is one of a series of Wild Making Workshops run by Jenny (Damoon) Smith at Tyninghame Beach and Woods in 2020. The workshops often fall close to a significant time in the natural calendar and are designed to provide a re-wilding, creative experience, that draws on and connects us more deeply to to the natural world.
