Dreamcatcher Workshop

Legends state that dreamcatchers can protect you from bad dreams. Simply place the dreamcatcher over your bed, and good dreams will pass down through the feathers. Bad dreams, on the other hand, are caught within the web and then destroyed by sunlight in the morning. Create your own personalized dream catcher at the Membertou Heritage Park.
