Educating through Arts and Crafts


An integrated approach to craft work in Steiner Waldorf Schools
Ed. Michael Martin

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.
