Other Scenes from Winter Festival 2022

Joy and I were so busy those days!

Thanks to Elf Cathy’s for covering me, I was able to squeeze out of the Elves Workshop briefly to take in the beauty of the Winter Festival 2022.

My 12th Grader auctioning off her piano skills to raise funds for their senior class trip to Ireland! Her kindergarten teacher won the piano lessons, so it will come full circle, the student will teach the teacher!

My wonderful family, (sans the girl in the photo above), without whose support, I would not be able to run Elves Workshop this year!

Beautiful fairy of the cakes.

I tried the ethereal fairy of the cakes bit, but as my friends know, eating sugar makes me hyper! Yikes!

Thank you for reading to the bitter end! You are a champ!

About Elves Workshop

Each year, in the midst of a dreary, gray winter, in our Waldorf School of Orange County in Costa Mesa, California, a very special event would take place, namely, the Winter Festival. In one day, a magical village would spring up, with warm treats, holiday music, fun activities and the magical Elves Workshop.

For one precious day a year, children 6th Grade and under would be able to enter and marvel at the wondrous Elves’ Workshop. There, without their parents, and only assisted by the 7th Grader Elves, children would pick and shop with their heart’s content for one-of-a-kind, handmade treasures for themselves or for their dear ones for the holidays.

I have been especially honored to be privy to the insides of this for “children only” Elves Workshop. Here, I share the secret and splendor with you! Click on the years below, you shall see photos of events from those years. – Jzin
