Devanas Earth Mother

Devana's Earth Mother and her flower children.

Last weekend Devana gave a full day workshop to ten of the mothers from the attachment parenting meetup to show us how to make the beautiful Earth Mother pictured above.

It was really a special treat. Not only did we each produce our own unique and lovely Earth Mamas (for our Nature Tables), but we had great conversations – it would be hard to go wrong with a such a cool group of crafty, Waldorf-inspired, attachment moms – and a delicious potluck lunch to boot.

Devana runs a home-based Waldorf kindergarten and pre-school. Her website is The Garden of Enchantment.

Devana had her store set up: lovely items, many handmade, at reasonable prices. Note that the wool roving is plant-dyed by Devana.

This is what the room looked like when we arrived.

More finished creations. Devanas original is in the back with the green apron. Mine is the bald one, but I had Christian to run after.
