The doll is special among toys because it is an image of the human being. With the doll’s help we can seek our own identity. We can reveal our innermost thoughts, sorrows, and joys to our doll-friend. – Karen Neuschutz from Waldorf Education- A Family Guide.

The upcoming LifeWays weekend is our first venture into a summer offering. We hope that you will join us in a relaxing summery weekend of creating a Waldorf heavy baby, most lifelike and loveable of all dolls for young children. Doll-making can be one of the most rewarding creative acts you may ever embark on. A doll is a product of your heart as much as your hands and a gift of love to yourself and the fortunate child who receives it.

Weekend facilitator, Laurie Harper-Burgess, long time dollmaker and LifeWays caregiver, will lead you in making either a baby doll weighing about 5 pounds for a kindergarten child or a smaller baby doll weighing about 3 pounds for a younger child. They are filled with organic red lentils and lavender. We will also create a removable cotton velour outfit and hat for your baby that washes and dries beautifully.
