Dreamcatchers Part 2: weaving beauty from scraps

Following on from last weeks online workshop where we showed participants how to make and paint feathers, this week we demonstrated how to construct and weave dream catchers using a willow hoop and yarn. We finished off the piece by decorating with scraps of fabric found around the home, finally adding the painted feathers.

If you would like further ideas for making your own dream catcher, we have put together this collection of links to our favourite sites that that inspired us:
