Handwork Teachers Conference 2015

Hosted By St. Pauls Steiner School

The UK Waldorf Handwork Community was founded 3 years ago. It was created through my own personal experience as a Handwork Teacher so that teachers from around the country could meet and create a forum where we could share ideas and inspirations.

The 3rd annual Handwork conference took place on the 14th of February at St.Pauls Steiner School in London. This is the third year the school has sponsored our conference and we are all very grateful for the school’s support: it is the perfect venue!

We had a wonderful day with teachers coming from schools all over the country, from as far away as Scotland and Wales.

Henry Howlett was our speaker for the day, and his talk created a wonderful backdrop for our discussions and ideas. It is amazing to feel part of such a vibrant community and to appreciate how many talented, hard working Handwork Teachers there are at schools around the country: some have a huge amount of experience while others are coming in with new ideas.

To meet up and to be able to open up a dialogue about how we can keep moving forwards and sharing our resources was a wonderful opportunity. It was a real inspiration to see everyone! Seeds were planted and new ideas formed for the future!

A rare opportunity to see a fusion of music, eurythmy and drama in this unique theatre genre of modern ‘mystery’ drama

Saturday 28th February   2pm

Rudolf Steiner House, London
Rudolf Steiner’s mystery dramas go far beyond our normal conceptions of drama.  They take place both on earth and in spiritual realms.  We witness furthermore, as well as the contemporary men and women at the centre of the drama, different spiritual beings playing their parts in the lives and inner trials of the characters.  The intense crises the people go through, individually and in their inter-relationships, lead to what may well be perceived merely as a tragedy.  The mystery dramas though are, above all, contemporary dramas of initiation – and the trials faced by the characters prove, in the end, deeply transformative – for them and also, hopefully, the audience.

The Stroud Mystery Drama Group is a group of mainly amateur performers, who have worked for nearly a year to bring The Guardian of the Threshold to the stage.  The cast of over thirty people, specially created live music, beautiful set design, eurythmy, the intense drama on many levels of existence and the vast initiatory journey promise to make this an extraordinary experience.
The action of the play is set in motion by an open invitation to an unusual event of potentially great significance.  Many people arrive and the play begins.  You are warmly invited to The Guardian of the Threshold!
The performance will last 5 – 6 hours including two intervals.
Tickets: £20 (£15 concessions), Group of ten: £15 each
Refreshments will be available during the intervals (cost not included in the ticket)
For bookings email
There will also be a lecture and a workshop, working with the theme of this play:
Friday 27 February   7.30 – 9pm
The Redemption of Lucifer and the Redemption of Ahriman
Glimpses of future possibilities in The Guardian of the Threshold
Lecture by Daniel Hafner
Rudolf Steiner's third mystery drama The Guardian of the Threshold presents the transformation of a traditional mystery temple into a modern school of initiation, whose pupils face the adversary forces directly and consciously.
£3.50 (£1 concessions) – No booking required
Saturday 28 February   10.30am – 1pm
Scene Three of The Guardian of the Threshold
Workshop, rehearsal and studio rendition
With Daniel Hafner and Matthew Dexter
The especially dramatic third scene of Rudolf Steiner’s mystery drama The Guardian of the Threshold will offer us a chance to experience the drama from the inside, by speaking and acting ourselves. Depending on the number of participants, we shall speak and move some or all of the parts in chorus. We shall use the translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch. All are welcome, regardless of familiarity with the mystery dramas.
£7 (£5 concessions) – Booking advisable (via Rudolf Steiner House)
Entry free with tickets for the performance!
