Dream catcher project (1) – Hélène Lamouche
Here, read the transcript of the interview with Hélène Lamouche, President of the Cercle de Fermières Saint-Eustache.
Last year, it was dream catchers. And we had, we didn’t have much of an idea who to go to. And eventually my daughter said to me, “Mom,” she said, because in the schools there have been a lot of cuts. She said, “We’d like to do a field trip but it… what do you think of me bringing my students… to the Cercle?” Last year she was teaching children with autism in grades 8 and 9. So… I talked to Ginette about it, Ginette Lemay in textile arts. And she said to me, “Hélène, what do you think of getting them to make dream catchers?” Hmm, very good idea. So that’s how we started the project. We talked to her about it… On a free Wednesday evening, we came here. My daughter came, and the teacher of the other class. Because we put two classes together. We had eleven students altogether. And we learned how to make dream catchers. And after that, we went to meet them at the school.
