Community Crafting Series Handwork and crafts have been taught since the founding of the first Waldorf school. From learning to knit in the first grade to using a sewing machine in the 8th grade, our children connect their hands and their hearts through the creativity and usefulness of crafting. The invaluable lessons of handwork apply to our children and to ourselves as parents. The desire to create is strong within us all, and an outlet for the expression of ideas and ideals that is essential in all our lives.
The Parents Association is offering a series of crafting mornings this semester. Parents can gather to meet other parents, learn a new skill or bring along whatever craft project currently in progress. Knitting, felting, sewing and crocheting will all be taught to parents. All materials provided in the learning series. This is wonderful opportunity to learn the same skills that your child will be learning in his/her class and grow together in your handwork as a family. Please see newsletter for more details. This Wednesday we will explore hand sewing lunch napkins with professional sewer Susan Robinson. Upcoming dates: 2/5, 3/5, 3/19, 4/2, 4/30, 5/14, 5/28. All craft mornings meet after drop off at the grade school library from 8:30 - 10:00 am. For more information or to RSVP (to ensure supplies for everyone)please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
