Each year we have an auction to raise funds for our school. Last year, I showed a wet felted rug that a group of moms and I made to auction. This year, I wanted to show a few examples of some really beautiful things that were made by the student, parent and teacher community. Many schools have similar auctions so I thought that showing some Waldorf auction items would give ideas and inspiration to other moms.
The first picture is a beautiful stained glass piece made by the 6th grade students with help from a talented dad and former teacher at our school (who is a gifted stained glass maker). The class was inspired by their studies of the stained-glass-filled Gothic cathedrals of the Medieval era. They feature our much loved “honu” or Hawaiian turtle.
The next two pictures show a wooden barn handmade by a Kindergarten parent filled with needle felted barnyard animals. It’s so cute and will provide a lucky child with hours and hours of imaginative play!
The last pictures are of gorgeous terra cotta planters made by the Kindergarten class with guidance from their amazingly talented teacher. The pots are glazed by the children and then fired in our high school kiln. The planters are filled with a bonsai tree, Hawaiian moss, and succulent plants. The piece de resistance is the hand sculpted, glazed and fired figurines that are added to the pots.
The last picture is of a happy gnome in one of the planters…My absolute favorite Waldorf auction item!
