Handwork: Developing Fine Motor Skills

Handwork allows children and youth to practice tactile arts and develop fine motor skills.
In Waldorf curriculum, handwork brings a balance between intellect and movement - allowing students to experience the creative process fully as they work on repetitive motion and movement activities like woodworking, stone carving, needlework, knitting, and crochet. Using real tools and creating works of art they will treasure - these activities strengthen concentration and hand-eye coordination and grow a child's self-confidence.
