Step by step crafts for children from 6 to 8 years.
Making Waldorf Crafts is a recipe book to guide young people through making things on their own (with a little help or guidance from an adult, if needed) with plenty of pictures to follow. As school curriculums are under more pressure to fulfill academic goals, there projects will provide opportunities to develop dexterity, hand-eye co-ordination and creativity with a series of tried and tested, age appropriate projects to gradually build up skills.
Techniques include spinning, knitting, sewing and weaving and the projects and techniques are accompanied by stories and anecdotes with a narrative that children won't be able to resist.
The author, Nina Taylor, has spent thirty years in Steiner-Waldorf settings near Canterbury as a Handwork teacher. She was co-facilitator of the UK Waldorf Handwork Teacher Training course and not least a grandmother of three girls (triplets!) and a grandson too and is enjoying watching their quite different characters develop.
