Long time advocate, Connie Jens, has always wanted to do a an adult workshop in Billings featuring activities children, K-2, experience on a regular basis in a Waldorf classroom. Well, now she is doing just that Saturday, June 1 from 10 a.m through 4 p.m. at Barjon’s Books.
With Connie, you will explore the magic of Wet-on-Wet Watercolor painting, the comfort and warmth of Beeswax Modeling, the beauty and functionality of Beeswax Crayoning, the charm of storytelling with Table Puppets (you will make), the delight of Strawberry Fairies (you will make and wear), and the reverence of a Seasonal Nature Table you will help create. Along with these hands-on activities, Connie will give an overview of Waldorf Education and share seasonal songs, verses, and ideas for simple puppet plays.
There is a $5 material fee but no charge for the workshop itself. Bring a sack lunch.
For the Watercolor Painting – Bring a large glass water jar, a rag for cleaning your brush, a small soft sponge, and a 1″ or 1/2″ watercolor brush if you have one.
For Making Table Puppets & Strawberry Fairies – bring scissors, needle & thread, scraps of fabric, felt & yarn, toilet paper roll (yup)
For the Nature Table – bring something seasonal from your yard.

The workshop begins at 10 a.m. The morning session will include making simple Table Puppets and Strawberry Fairies. At lunch time (bring a sack lunch), we will create a Nature Table while we talk and eat. The afternoon will include Wet-on-Wet Watercolor Painting, Beeswax Modeling, and Beeswax Crayoning as we rotate through stations of each. We will close the workshop at 4 p.m.with a song or verse, the Waldorf way.
