Preparing the Environment for Handwork.
With the help of my husband, I presented from my classroom in New Zealand so we could have a look at my handwork shelf as well as discuss ways to build a culture of handwork for both the students and the adults in the class.
It was meant to last one hour but I went a little over in all my excitement and still had so much I wanted to say! Here is the recording, I mostly talked from an elementary perspective but I hope there is some useful information for other age groups as well.

This quick videos shows you my solution to the problem of the perpetually messy sewing box in a Montessori classroom as promised in the webinar.
Wet Felting In Cosmic Education
In this webinar I introduce wet felting in both two and three dimensions and discuss ways to incorporate it in the Montessori environment at each plane of development.
This webinar raised $162USD for Educateurs Sans Frontieres. A huge thank you to all who contributed.
You can find links to the lessons I refer to and a list of materials here.
These webinars are offered completely free. The Zoom webinar function costs me $155USD per month. There is no obligation to contribute at all but if you are able to chip in a few dollars towards my costs, I would greatly appreciate it.
Any money I receive beyond the basic webinar costs will be donated to Educateurs Sans Frontieres. It would make me very happy to be able to donate to this wonderful cause as a result of my webinars. I will post the amount donated after each webinar.
