Waldorf Window Stars and Echoes of Moravian Stars: Day and Night

I finished the 2013 A to Z Blogging Challenge, which kept me blogging throughout April.  One of the pleasures of the challenge is discovering other artists and bloggers who are participating, and these folded tissue paper window stars by Ann of  Harvest Moon by Hand caught my attention.  Like the stained glass cookies of ZOOM, these are another encounter with letting light shine through color.

The Craft Show at the Kimberton Waldorf School is one of my favorites to participate in, and the students sell their own handiwork as well, including Waldorf Stars.  They remind me of the Moravian Stars I grew up with.  My congregation was the home of the Alberta Starcraft Workshop, which constructed Moravian stars in one of the Sunday School classrooms during the week.  Walking into this room was like walking into a galaxy, with stars of many colors hanging along the walls.

The 2011 Kimberton Waldorf School Craft Show is here and Nutmeg Designs is glad to be part of it!  I have an affinity for this show, where students sell their handmade gifts alongside us, and fulfill the Waldorf philosophy as described at Why Waldorf Works:

Waldorf teachers believe that the human being is not just a brain – but a being with heart and limbs – a being of will and feeling, as well as of intellect… Here the arts and practical skills make their essential contribution, educating not only heart and hand but, in very real ways, the brain as well.

If you live in the greater Philadelphia area, come by and feed your heart with beauty!  Stratoz and I are especially glad hearted to bring our latest Hope mosaic, Hope in the Desert, a collaboration of our heart and hands.  We are in the gym, across from the stage(which is full of delightful crafts made by Waldorf students.)  Did I mention the dessert room?

Entering the craft show season with some trepidation, I was glad to learn that I can do 4 craft shows in 4 weeks, and come out the other side having met some lovely people, and was honored to have many of my mosaics purchased and taken to new homes by enthusiastic patrons of handmade craft.  The last show was at the Kimberton Waldorf School, and was a delightful experience.  I would have loved attending a Waldorf school as a child or young adult.  Our booth was right next to the Village Artisan Shop, which was on the gym stage, and stocked with handmade goods from students including soap, candles, gingerbread houses, handknits, Christmas tree ornaments, and tissue paper mandalas.  I bought a gray wool hat, knitted by a student, and have enjoyed its warmth all week.

The welcoming nature of this show included multiple vegetarian dishes at the cafe, locally grown greens, and bread from a bakery owned by parents of a Kimberton student.  The Library was the tearoom, and included excellent coffee and an array of baked goods, and students providing live music.  Listening to 4 young men sing Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, we were all singing by the last chorus, and I felt grateful to be there, to be present, alive and part of a common voice.

Back in the studio, I finished grouting a Joy Panel, one of my collaborations with Stratoz.
