The Queensland Country Women's Association Beechmont branch has invited the Scenic Rim community to help them build a giant dreamcatcher on Saturday in celebration of International Women's Day.

Branch president Amanda Harrison said the event was about "weaving connections within the community", particularly in the recovery phase of the pandemic.

"International Women's Day honours women's efforts in looking after the wellbeing of ourselves, families, and communities, and achieving an equal future," she said.

"Our large dreamcatcher is a way to focus on our health, dreams and visions for our future and weaving this into our lives and environment."

Ms Harrison said a working party had already started a practice run dreamcatcher made out of an old trampoline frame.

Pending its success, she said the branch aimed to set a Guinness World Record by making a 12-metre dreamcatcher.

People are invited to assist by sponsoring or supplying materials.

The branch can be contacted via email at qcwabeechmountain@gmail.com.

The event is scheduled for 10am on March 6 at Graceleigh Park, 1922 Beechmont Road, Beechmont

Attendees welcome to contribute their own trinkets or decorations to the dreamcatcher

All are invited to bring a picnic and rug to sit on during the event, which will feature musicians, Indigenous elders, and tree of life women on the oval.
