Handwork and the 12 Senses: Teaching the Whole Child

 

Online International Handwork Teachers' Conference
Handwork and the 12 Senses: Educating the Whole Child

Learn about the 12 senses of touch, life, self-movement, balance, smell, taste, sight, temperature/warmth, hearing, language, thought, and ego. How do these 12 senses develop as children grow? How can we support our student's development through handwork?

4 days, Monday - Thursday, 9 - 3 pacific daylight time, for anyone who self-identifies as a handwork teacher in a group or school setting. Live teaching and renowned guest speakers.

Balance the outpouring of the school year by reconnecting with colleagues and rediscovering balance, passion and purpose as we deepen the foundations of teaching handwork.
