4 years of Handwork training is now finished. It was a glorious training and a retreat all rolled into one. I made some incredible friendships along the way and I know my soul was nourished. I started this training with no job, got a job as a handwork teacher and now have ended it with no job again. I was not fitting into the schedule of the Ithaca Waldorf School so now I am in search of what to do next. There is a wonderful network of homeschooler and thoughts of summer camps whirl in my brain. I know that I will hold a dyers workshop - just have to settle on the date. Here are some shots as labeled. Please ask any questions you might have - I will try to help if I can.
Hold your breath and don't stop your movements or you get flaws with the transfer of paint onto the paper.
Low, slow but steady
