About the workshop

Dreamcatchers are adopted from native American cultures where a spider like web is woven inside a willow hoop, that's believed to bring positivity and protect us from bad dreams. Now a days, they're widely used as home decor that adds a positive vibe to the atmosphere. In this workshop we shall learn the basics of a Dreamcatcher where a kit will be shipped to your doorstep as well!
