Second Sunbridge Week

...Mostly photos, a few explanations:)

From the Fiber Craft Studio...

...I've taken up the drop spindle this past week by way of a creative friend and a supportive environment....
Roving has now taken on another trait in my book!!!










A variety of flowers, peels, and other plant life for plant dyeing..
pictured here: onion peels, cosmos, chestnuts, and madder.
I bought .5 lbs. of madder to experiment with red/dark salmon tones..



During our practical class block, we wet felted some Fall apples together:)


Kindergarten Classroom,
 Green Meadow Waldorf School










Parent-Child Classroom, 
This space is specifically designed for ages birth-2
(can you tell why?)
Green Meadow Waldorf School





A great set up of "Pikler" furnishings; developmentally appropriate for babies and young toddlers.
Notice the cube in the background...this is a great piece of equipment for the stage of emerging crawling on the hands and knees, as well as when the child is an accomplished crawler:) I am sure they also love to crawl through it, too:) Imagine the delight and interest!



Again, design and simplicity in play materials and gross motor equipment based upon the developmental progresses though the early months and years of life..



Two of my newest friends...  :)
It's incredible to be around so many like minded people, day in and day out.

more later!

  5. Dear Rebecca, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!
    I have had a drop spindle for years, but the children and I cannot quite get it going. I would love to learn.
    Love to you, Melanie

  6. Hi there!! I'm always so happy when new people stop by my blog and leave a comment!! Now, I've found your wonderful blog!! Your photos are so pretty. We attended a fundraiser for our local Waldorf school. My friend's son attends the school. It was a barn dance and we had such a wonderful time. Have a great day and best of luck with your yarn work!!
