If you have had success from video tutorials, well done. You have made your first dream catcher. You should know that the style of web they show you is the most simple web style. But if you want to further explore different styles of weaving, it is going to be hard.
Also in these videos, they always ask you to get a metal ring and faux suede cords to make the dream catchers, but in actual, there are many other materials that cost less and are easier to manage when you make a dream catcher. We at Green Daun Craft Shop offers lessons on how to make a dream catcher, and only for a minimal fee of RM50.00 per person which includes all materials.
We have taught over 100 students since 2016, and most of our students have initially visited YouTube to learn how to make a dreamcatcher, but a lot of them faced difficulties in the webbing technique. Our dream catcher classes in Malaysia offer easy and straight forward solutions to making a dream catcher, the comfortable way.
Some of our students who encountered problems from online videos or articles, faced problems in understanding the webbing technique as you can see in the photos above. Though they look relatively easy, not everyone understands the complete mechanics in getting the web right. Hence, you will see many simple web designs on social media and so on.
To be very honest, there is no right or wrong way, just the best way that you feel comfortable in making one. Which ever suits you, and we will share with you the different techniques and styles for this craft. Each class takes up about three to five hours, depending on how fast you learn and at the end of the day, you will walk home with your own hand made dream catcher.
One thing we would like to highlight is that when we do something, we want to do it to our best. And in many cases, most people just stop at completing it. There is no drive to better the webbing technique, meaning if it looks like a web, then it is done. However, this is a common issue in most dream catcher makers, who then start selling their creations with very simple and basic web designs.
At Green Daun, we guide you to refining your webbing technique in order for you to come out with beautiful and clean dream catcher web designs. When you achieve this, your friends or customers will be impressed with your finished work and will set you apart from the common dream catchers out there.
