Year-End Handwork

Hels spent much of the spring making this jester's cap as part of the Renaissance theme.

Lou fell in love with it and declared: "this is so cool--I'm going to wear it every day of 8th grade!"

Lou enjoyed cross stitch this year. Here is a pin cushion she made me.

Here are all the pencil cases made by her class. Aren't they lovely?

Finally, here's a bench the 8th grade made as a gift for the school. Each back has a different scene sculpted into it. My favorite is a snail with the earth sculpted into its shell. I couldn't show it to you because someone was sitting on it.

Such beautiful detail on all of the items. I love that they have individual projects as well as class projects.

It always amazes me how beautiful and practical Waldorf handwork is. Gorgeous pictures.

Is Lou a little "jester" in real life? She's so cute. That is all such beautiful work the students did.

Funny. Nathan made a pencil case & pincushion, too. Will post once I get camera batteries. I always love looking at their work... This year on our end Noah brought home his clay bust. Funny. :-)

I saw your comment on MommyCoddle and was wondering if you have heard of Pomona's Pectin for jam making. The jelling is from the calcium water (included) and not all the extra sugar. I like that you can use honey! Hope this helps!

What great work! Your girls certainly have talented fingers! It seems so funny to me that June heralds the end of the school year for you guys! (but I agree that Summer is a great time for a big break from formal schooling :-))Happy Holidays

Great handwork! Who is their handwork teacher? I would like my 4th graders to make the pencil cases!
