A summary
Mary’s Star Path ? is a magical addition to any home during the Advent. We will begin by crafting a Mary together, by needle felting for you to take home, and if there is time a donkey. I will demonstrate how to bring this beautiful experience into your home. The path is seen as a type of advent calendar, which you build up over December with Mary making her way to the stable for the arrival of baby Jesus on Christmas Day. Many families say it is a highlight of the Christmas period. I will discuss the elements of the four kingdoms that are brought in each week of advent and show you examples. I will give you songs, and verses to help you enabling you to share with your own children.
About your mentor
Lorna Hendley
A teacher & mum who knows how to have fun!
I originally worked as a learning support assistant in mainstream school and found myself drawn to younger children. I fell in love with the Waldorf kindergarten from the moment I walked through the door. I did my Waldorf early years teacher training alongside working as an assistant at Michael Hall Steiner school. I became a teacher there and set up a new group of children and families. I was fortunate to have several happy years there before starting my own family. I am now a busy home maker and mother to three young children. I am a qualified Forest school leader and have lead a Waldorf inspired outdoor parent and child group. I am excited to be bringing my skills in Waldorf teaching to interested parents in the local community.
