Events Calendar 2019
Easter Event and Egg Hunt
Monday 15th April 2019
We are planning an Easter Event at Chambers Farm Wood. There will be an Easter Egg hunt in the woods, a craft and cake sale, songs, a story, music and sharing of food. There will be a small charge for the Easter Egg Hunt. We will also be raising money with a tombola. So please bring lots of change and any donations to the tombola would be greatly appreciated.
We really hope you can make it!
Monday 6th May 2019
We will be dancing and singing around the Maypole within the Magic Circle and hoped to be joined by some professional May Pole Dancers! Everyone is invited to bring a picnic to share in the sunshine. As with all of our events we will try to raise funds for the group with other activities such as a tombola, face painting and cake sale.
Workshop with Lou Harvey-Zahra

Experienced Waldorf teacher and author of some really useful books that we refer to often, we're inviting Lou back by popular demand to offer inspiring talks that will be relevant to parents and anyone with young children. Watch this space for more details. To be held in Lincoln.
Saturday 22nd June 2019
We will be holding a mid-summer fairy walk in the woods to help raise money for the Lincolnshire Waldorf Group. Children (and parents) will be encouraged to dress as fairies, sprites and elves. The walk will include fairy house and door spotting. There will be arts and crafts for the children as well as a story in the magic circle. We aim to sell cakes and bakes and summer crafts.
Date to be confirmed (Sunday 29th September 2019)
Michaelmas (pronounced MI-kel-miss) was originally a Christian festival in Western Europe during the Middle Ages. It is the feast day of the archangel St. Michael, and is celebrated on the 29th of September each year.
Michael is an archangel in Judaism, Christianity and Islam, but his festival is one that can observed by people of all faiths and spiritual paths.
Michaelmas falls near the autumn equinox, marking the quickly darkening days in the northern hemisphere. It comes at a time when the weather is rapidly changing and the days are noticeably shorter, and we have a natural instinct to prepare for the colder months ahead.
It marks the end of the harvest and the time to begin to put away food for the winter. It is a time of apple picking and cider making, a time to make warm soup and gather round the hearth. It is the time to put our summer clothes away, and pull out our sweaters, hats, and mittens.
Michaelmas marks the season when we feel the impulse to turn inward after the long, warm days of summer, and gather up strength and fortitude to face the colder days and long nights of the winter ahead.
Talk and Workshop with Dorothy Marlen
Saturday 2nd November 2019
A Waldorf perspective on the child aged 2-4, and how we can engage with them. Includes crafts and practical activities.
Dorothy is the author of The Parent & Child Handbook - which is really the bible for our group. She is an early childhood consultant and trainer, and a long term friend and inspiration to our group.
Her morning talk will cover a Waldorf perspective on the child aged 2-4 - their development and behaviours, and how we can engage with them as parents and early years educators, including the use of song and story-telling. The talk will be repeated at 10am and 12 noon so both parents get to enjoy it.
There will be a practical craft activity in the afternoon, primarily aimed at parents and as an opportunity for further discussion. Children can have a go as long as you are supervising your child(ren).
There will be a bring & share lunch with the children - please bring something for the shared table, and label it for allergens as appropriate. If you have serious allergies or complicated dietary needs, feel free to bring your own packed lunch if you prefer.
We are keen not to separate families on a weekend, and also that Dads, Mums, other primary care-givers and anyone parenting single-handed can all get to enjoy Dorothy's talk. So we encourage you to come as a family - children are welcome - and there will be suitable indoor and outdoor space where they can play (they need to be supervised, we cannot offer childcare provision on this occasion).
