A dreamcatcher workshop will be held at the Castleton Community Center. Dreamcatchers have two legends about their beginnings; one told by the Ojibwe and another told later by the Lakota after they learned about them through trade with the Ojibwe people. Both stories include spiders weaving their webs to catch and filter good and bad dreams before they enter a child’s head while sleeping. In other words, a dream catcher would trap the bad dreams that blew freely in the night air and keep them from entering the mind of those it protected. Each part of the dream catcher has a significant meaning and was usually made of a hoop, a web, feathers, beads, gemstones and arrowheads.                                        

Make your reservation by Friday, July 26, to join the workshop on Tuesday, July 30, starting with lunch at 12 noon offering Chicken Breast with Tarragon Sauce, and to learn how to make a dreamcatcher of your own. The fee is $6, and includes lunch and materials.
