What I'll be crafting
Dreamcatchers originated with the Ojibwe people and were later adopted
by some neighbouring nations through intermarriage and trade.
Storytellers speak of the Spider Woman, known as Asibikaashi; she took care of the children and the people on the land. Eventually, the Ojibwe Nation spread to the corners of the world and it became difficult for Asibikaashi to reach all the children. So the mothers and grandmothers would weave magical webs for the children, so that Asibikaashi could protect them through the dreamcatchers.
The Ojibwe believe that a dreamcatcher changes a person’s dreams. Good dreams would pass through and slide down the feathers to the sleeper, bad dreams would stay in the net, disappearing with the light of day.
We’ve updated the look of the dreamcatcher whilst retaining the symbolic elements which gives the dreamcatcher its magic! Learn to make dreamcatchers for your loved ones, to ensure they have nothing but good dreams!
About the instructor
Wen Yang is an ex-poly lecturer who founded Mojo Atelier. He used to teach digital media design. Moving design from the screen to physical crafts had always been an unfulfilled dream of his.
Being a little unorthodox, he likes to give a twist to tried-and-tested methods of crafting; to innovate new designs and products.
It's hard to break away from old habits, hence every new craft that has been learnt and mastered, is now transformed into a workshop to hand over this knowledge to the next passionate crafter.
