Tree of Life Dreamcatcher Ornament Workshop
November 30, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$40
The term dreamcatcher means spider in Ojibwe, and that’s typically what we think of when we see one: a web of string wrapped inside a hoop. Unlike most dreamcatchers, however, the string used in these beauties is wire that’s been shaped into a tree of life. At only 3 inches, this miniature-size version is perfect for your Christmas tree or Hanukkah bush. Join wirework artist Sarah Jane Oiler as she shows you how to create your own mini tree of life dreamcatcher using wire, beads, and hand tools. You’ll start by watching Oiler demonstrate how to wrap a 3-inch wire hoop. Then, you’ll take a hoop that Oiler has pre-wrapped to save time and begin twisting and bending wire to form your tree of life’s branches and trunk. Eventually, you’ll add bead leaves and refine your unique sculpture. For more information, or to register, visit the Purple Crayon website at www.purplecrayonavl.com/workshops.
