Weaving wonder, 2
July 19- July 23 | 9am- 2pm pacific time
Ages 10+ | $300 | 12 spaces
In this 2nd installment of Weaving Wonder, (not dependent on the first one and with different weaving projects- you can sign up for either or both) your child will explore weaving techniques (getting a sense of how cloth is made in the process) and use ready-made fabric to construct a simple blouse or dress of their own.
We will talk about the relationship between weaving and Spider in different cultures, how each of us plays a part in weaving the future and how fast fashion impacts the environment.
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.
