An Integrated Approach to Craft Work in Steiner Waldorf Schools

Written by experienced Waldorf craft teachers, this large, comprehensive book presents many ideas for craft activity classes, whilst analyzing their role in the student's self-discovery and creative development.

This book not only describes the full range of crafts taught in Steiner Waldorf schools, it also puts them into the context of the developing human being.

It is becoming more and more recognized that the skills acquired in working with wood, metal, textiles, ceramics, among other materials, enable the individual to develop a whole range of transferable skills which form a basis for lifelong learning, as well as cultivating insight into technology and a sound relationship to the earth.

A separate section describes the work of the Hiram Trust who helped to make the publication of this book possible.
