Hands-on Learning at Conference!

Join WLR and friends for hands-on learning — for the adults! This is a day for youFor you to be inspired, for you to learn and take a little time for yourself. When homeschooling parents take time for themselves – to learn, to create – they are able to return to their families refreshed, renewed and re-energized. Most of our workshops and even our Keynote are designed as interactive classes.

The two classes highlighted below involve handwork. Please note the supply fee which is payable to the instructor at the start of the workshop.

Making Lucets / Main Lesson Basics – Rick Tan (Upstairs – Session A)

Join Rick Tan in this hands-on workshop in which participants will sand and decorate wooden lucets (pictured below and used in Jennifer Tan’s class on Lucetting). Lucets are ancient handheld tools that were used by Vikings to braid cords. While your hands are busy, Dr. Tan will also present Waldorf homeschooling logistics such as how to use main lesson books in recording student work. $5 supply fee for Lucet. Payable in cash or check to Syrendell.


Lucet & Kumihimo  – Jennifer Tan (Upstairs – Session B)

Explore Japanese and Viking styles of cord weaving in this easy-to-learn handwork workshop! Jennifer Tan will lead parents in learning the basics of both fiber arts, and provide supplies needed to make beautiful cords. Parents will go home with a kumihimo disc (pictured below) and plant-dyed wool yarns used during the workshop. Kumihimo and Lucet are appropriate to teach children ages 5 and up. $5 supply fee for Kumihimo & plant-dyed wool yarn; $12 supply fee for Lucet (no need if you make your own Lucet in R. Tan’s Session A workshop). Payable in cash or check to Syrendell.
