Dreamcatcher Workshop w/Lenny Novak

HE’S BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! HE’S COMING BACK!

Lenny was here last March, and there were so many of you that wanted to come to the workshop we decided to invite him back, and he ACCEPTED!

During one of Abenaki artist Lenny Novak's journeys, he saw his first Dreamcatcher made of a grapevine and fishing line. It fascinated him. He began learning all about it and the Ojibwa tribe that was credited with its development. He learned the many stories that went with it and its uses. Then he sought to combine the nature that he loved with the Dreamcatcher that caught him in its web of wonder and bring it to a more natural life. Seeking to make a "loop to loop," which is the web most people associate with Dreamcatchers, and without instruction, he began to weave how he thought the web was made. Over twenty five years later his now perfected technique has brought his art to the forefront as we consider his Dreamcatchers fine contemporary Native art.
