Craft Group

Craft Group

Ever wanted to learn how to make those lovely Steiner toys your children are playing with?  Want to earn your community hours meeting new friends and discovering new skills?  Come and try Craft Group!

We meet in the Kurrajong room on Sundays and enjoy a cuppa and a chat while creating marvelous items in the Steiner tradition.

We supply all the materials for you to make wonderful works of Steiner-inspired art for sale at the Spring Fair. And no need to worry if you are all thumbs – there re always plenty of helpers to support you and teach you the tricks that make the craft come together.  Children are welcome if another adult comes with them to supervise them as they play in the garden.  

We’ve got lots of projects to work on, so if you are an old hand at craft, or if you have never tried DIY Steiner, come and join us – there is no nicer way to earn your community hours than filling the Craft Group stall. And we are always on the lookout for new creations - if you want to do your craft time at home, please get in touch with us through our mailbox. We particularly love to hear from woodworkers, as there appears to be an insatiable demand for handmade wooden Steiner toys!

Our CG Pinterest page has some beautiful examples of what we want to make for the Fair so have a look at https://au.pinterest.com/bluecardy/orana-craft-group-ideas/ and start making out your wish list.

Contact [email protected] if you want to join our mailing list or to become an at-home crafter, or just drop in one Sunday for a warm welcome.

Term 1 2019

Term 1 is when we stitch - we start simple, with flat felt fishes to swim in fabric ponds, and build up to more ambitious animals like dragons and unicorns.  We also try to fit in some wet felting, an ancient art which is surprisingly simple, but best suited to warmer weather.  

For your calendars, we'll be meeting in the Kurrajong room (same place as always - up past the P&F sheds) on the following dates (times TBC - please sign up to the mailing list to keep informed):

Sunday 10 Feb

Sunday 24 Feb

Sunday 3 March

Sunday 10 March

Sunday 24 March

Sunday 31 March

Sunday 7 April

On 17 February, 17 March and 14 April there will be no Sunday Craft Group.  If people are keen, we will see if we can meet on the Fridays before the later dates (that is, 15 March and 12 April).  We won't be meeting on 15 February.

Drop in one Sunday and find out for yourselves how much fun Craft Group can be.

See you soon!
