Homesteading, handicrafts, Hyyge

This class day is an opportunity for your children to learn mindfulness and contemplation through quiet, busy handiwork. In a loud, fast-paced world, the art of purposeful creation in stillness is almost impossible to find. Hygge (pronounced “hyoo-gah”) is just that.

In essence, hygge is creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. In contrast to the outside world, our Mondays are structured with a beautiful, slow morning in the garden at 9 am, where students will learn how to grow, tend, and forage for many wonderful foods and medicines. At 10 am, our academic lessons will commence for ages 8 and older, while those ages 5-7 will learn about homesteading practices, foraging, herbalism, plant identification, land conservation, and food preservation, interrupted only by snack and tea.

After lunch, from 12-1 pm, students will select their chosen handicraft such as needle or wet felting, sewing, embroidery, crochet, painting, nature journaling, scrapbooking, or whittling, and continue their work. Relaxing with others in quiet mindfulness, curled up and dedicating their time to their long-term projects, we hope to teach the joy of peace and creativity.

Offering for 2024/2025: Hygge – Handicrafts will be offered one day a week, on Mondays.
