Learn about the legend of the dreamcatcher. By forming a web of life with the sacred hoop, the dreamcatcher will capture your good thoughts, ideas, visions, and dreams. The hole in the hoop will allow the bad thoughts and negativity to pass through the web. Create your own dreamcatcher, either 6" or 12", all materials included.
Create a leather pouch for yourself or your loved ones, and learn to transform it to a medicine or spirit pouch by placing sacred items in it, giving it power.
