Make a Mayan dream catcher

Wednesday, 31 May, 2017 - 10:30 to 12:00

The Mayans believed that the night air is filled with dreams, both good and bad. It became impossible for The Gods to protect all the children from bad dreams that creep into their minds at night. Mothers and grandmothers wanted to save their children from worry and fear, so they began to weave magical webs, later known as Dream Catchers, which would filter out all bad dreams and only allow good thoughts to enter their heads. The purpose of these Dream Catchers was to catch bad dreams in the net that would disappear at daylight. Good dreams would pass through the web and slide down the feathers to the sleepers.
