Stitches in time
June 21- June 25 | 9am- 2pm pacific time
Ages 10+ | $300 | 12 spaces
In Stitches in Time, your child will create one larger piece or multiple smaller pieces using patchwork and/or embroidery.
Topics discussed will be quilting bees, geometric patterns in quilts and woven rugs or blankets, embroidery through time and place and the symbolism hidden throughout.
In addition to the multiple projects above, camp days are full of games, movement, oracle cards and sacred space, all rooted in emotional intelligence and reverence for Life and the Earth.
My teaching style has developed over 7 years as a Waldorf unschooling parent and teacher to other homeschoolers: wonder with a healthy dose of irreverence.
I encourage kids to play, to respectfully question authority and to celebrate their 'mistakes'.
I wholly agree with George Bernard Shaw that "What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child."
Please note that each day campers will close out of their computers for an hour from noon-1 for lunch.
After registration, you will receive an email with the zoom link for each week of camp you enroll in.
The week before camp begins, I'll send out a reminder along with any last-minute updates.
