Overview of Waldorf Handwork
April 23, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Waldorf Handwork Overview with Elizabeth Seward
This 3 hour workshop will introduce you to an overview of the handwork curriculum. Come learn how it benefits children by accompanying their development and supporting their cognitive, social, and inner growth.
We will explore both the ‘vertical’ and the ‘horizontal’ curriculum, concentrating on areas of most interest to participants, but also offering a broad picture of what, when, why and how. Everything is carefully woven together in the Waldorf curriculum, and we will explore how to lay a solid foundation of cognitive and practical skills, as well as how to build on them.
Handwork is where “the rubber meets the road!”
Elizabeth will tell some stories, including stories for 1st, 3rd and and 7th grade as examples, and we will learn the basics of spinning (which I see as the lynch-pin and main metaphor for the whole of Waldorf Education!)
Supplies will be provided, and some spindles and fiber will be available for sale.
Our plan is to we will follow up with additional workshops on specific skills and how to teach those them successfully.
Cost is $25.00
