1919 was the year when Rudolf Steiner founded the first Waldorf School. Emil Molt, the owner of the Waldorf Astoria Fabric (a cigarette factory by the way) asked Steiner if he could open a school for the children of the employees. The school opened its doors on 19th September 1919.
Since then there had been more than a tausend of Waldorf schools founded all over the world.
This year the 100th anniversary of this pedagogical concept will be celebrated.
I have some hundreds of ideas to celebrate the 100 years of Waldorf. Don't worry I won't be listing all of my ideas in this post :)
One of the many projects I have been working on is a book about waldorf and waldorf inspired dolls. Finally my dear friend, a great photographer Eva Radünzel-Kitamura and I have started to work on this project together. I have already had the written part, more or less, ready. Now we are working on the images. And the light at the end of the tunnel is now to see. May be we will be able to finish it (or at least a part) till summer. It will be a good constribution to Waldorf 100 from two 'Waldorf Moms' :)
My doll maker friends living in Berlin and I will be meeting soon, and I hope we can also do a speacial event for this occasion together. I'll write more about this project after our meeting.
By the way there are two videos on Waldorf 100 in different languages on youtube. For those who are interested, here is the link to the English version.
