Waldorf School Holiday Faire

I’ll be signing books at the Waldorf School of Cape Cod’s Holiday Faire on Saturday, Nov. 20th from 12 noon to 2pm. When my children attended the school 20 years ago, this event was our pride and joy. Then and now, parents, faculty and students put months of creative energy into making the day memorable for all who attend. The poster I designed years ago is still being used. I want to see the popular Excalibur Challenge, where children meet Merlin and have a go at pulling the sword from the stone!

There will be craft vendors and lots of activities for children, including crafts and games. The school’s store, Kindercraft, sells the naturally dyed wool felt that I use in my artwork. I’ll be writing more about this felt in a later post.

This year’s fair will be at the school’s new location in Cotuit. Last winter, I helped color the walls with the lazure  method of applying paint like watercolor, in graduated hues. Here are some classrooms all set up after we painted them. The whole building will be transformed into a magical environment for the Holiday Faire on Saturday.

Reminder: I will be doing a story time at the Sandwich Public Library on Tuesday, Nov. 16th at 10:30am. I’ll also be talking about and signing copies of my new nursery rhyme book, Pocketful of Posies.

  1. oh, if only you could be at our school’s holiday bazaar & children’s faire (waldorf school in ann arbor, michigan)! it is a magical transformation that happens and such a fun-filled day. enjoy yours!

  2. What a charming school! My daughter went to Montessori School when she was young. Waldorf Schools were few and far between in those days. Wish I could see those lovely painted rooms and visit the shop. The fair will be magical for sure!

  3. Thank you so much for sharing your Waldorf School Poster and lovely photos and memories with us. Over twenty years ago my family with our young children enjoyed the Holiday Faire at the Portland Waldorf School.and the springtime Maypole dances and faire. We have all felt enriched with our Waldorf experiences. Hoping you know just how much your thoughtful posts mean to so many of your admirers.
