Winter Faire Shopping
On Friday, December 2nd, join in an adult evening of holiday merriment including sipping warm soup, listening to carolers, and shopping with local artisans. You’ll find unique, hand-made items crafted with natural elements. From Puppenstube dolls to Sarah’s Silks to wooden cradles to the Summerfield School’s “store” items such as Elsa Beskow books and Stockmar crayons, you’ll find whimsical items your children are sure to love. In addition, several clothing vendors will also showcase their handmade wares, including Sono-Ma Soiree supporter Marali Creations.
Other vendors will sell jewelry, cutting boards, wooden boxes, holiday ornaments, candles, cheeses and other high quality, locally crafted items to fill the holiday wishes of the adults in your life.
There will even be a Fairy Museum and Gift Shop featuring the handmade wood work of Marc Feyh and Paul Kaiser. This photo (taken by our October 2011 Soiree photographer Stuart Mitchell) captures just some of the magic created by former Sono-Ma Soiree Artists Marc and Paul.
“I did all of my holiday shopping at last year’s Winter Faire,” shares parent Annalyce LaSource. Wonderfully, 10% of all shopping proceeds benefit this local Waldorf School.
Friends age 10 and older are also invited to join in a Fairy House workshop on Friday evening. Use fallen forest bits to create a unique and personal gift for a loved one (or yourself!) with fine artist Sharon Eisley.
Winter Faire Festival
Return on Saturday, December 3rd with the whole family. The Summerfield campus, often described as looking like a small European village, will be decked out in evergreens and ringing with the bells of holiday music.
Step close to the bonfire, dip a candle, and enjoy a marionette puppet show in the enchanting kindergarten classrooms. Eat a scrumptious, organic lunch while listening to talented students and staff play instruments and sing.
Circus Waldissima also plans a spectacular performance at the end of the festival. Students from fourth grade through high school create a fantastic collision of costumes, acrobatics, dance, trapeze arts, and live orchestra to create the Circus Waldissima show.
Gather your family close and breathe in an old world style holiday moment that is sure to fill you with joy!
