In Handwork, students are provided with natural fibers, quality tools and guided instruction to learn knitting, crocheting, felting, embroidery, plant dyeing, pattern making, hand and machine sewing, and other fiber crafts. As they learn and master these practical skills, they also improve their: eye-hand coordination; powers of observation; fine motor dexterity; self-monitoring abilities; spatial and deductive reasoning;  project management capabilities; and deepen their understanding of math and geometry. Handwork instills pride, promotes perseverance, develops social competency, and equips our students with enduring skills that present a means to relieve stress and enhance their health.
