Waldorf Practical Arts Training Module # 1 

with Jack Bryant and Mona Lewis

For the morning foundation studies in this new cycle, we will focus on the main elements of Waldorf Core Principles #1, "The Image of the Human Being."

In the hard crafts portion, we will work with the possibilities inherent in the curricula for grades three and four. We will make birdhouses, carve human beings and animals.

 

In soft crafts, for grades one and two curricula in module #1, we will make our own knitting needles, and knit a small pouch, rainbow ball and teddy bear. Participants will learn about fibers and dye techniques.
