Waldorf Workshops

For the last two years myself and a couple of other parents have been organizing craft workshops for the parents at our Brooklyn Waldorf School. Every Wednesday from 9am until noon we get together to learn a Waldorf type craft. The workshops are free and open to the public, our creations are sold at the school store to raise funds for the school. 
For Valentines day we created felt heart necklaces with roving wool and wool felt that we plant dyed ourselves under the guidance of Sono Kuwayama. 

Among other workshops we have done are: Making Wood Buttons, Wool Fairies, Circular Knitting, Plant Dying,  Needle Felted Animals, and many more.

Starting this summer in Brooklyn, an abandoned lot on the corner of Bergen and 4th Street will be transformed as part of the 596 Acres project. The Sewing Seeds CSA garden will run for a 6 month season between June and November 2012, providing members with plants to be used as natural dyes, as well as recipes and workshops utilizing them.
