In the Waldorf curriculum, the practicing of handwork includes, but is not limited to, knitting, crocheting, hand sewing, embroidery, cross stitch, wet felting, paper crafts and machine sewing. These activities create a foundation for subjects such as physics, geometry, or other areas of math and science, while also improving children’s dexterity, concentration and feelings of self-reliance.
