Understanding and Responding to This Moment in Our Time
Thursday, February 29, 2024
7:00 PM 8:30 PM
The Hartsbrook School (Piening Hall)

As polarization, violent conflict, threats to democracy and mass displacement are on the rise across the world, many of us are asking how we might come to a deeper understanding of the particular moment in which we are living. What are the more veiled dynamics at play today? Some of us, as well, may be asking ourselves how to be a force for the good through inner work and outer deeds.

This gathering, hosted by the Sojourner Branch of the Anthroposophical Society in America, will focus on these themes, seeking to share our varied spiritual and practical insights, and through listening to be enriched by one another, which may, in turn, inspire each of us to take action individually or with others.

Community Crafting: Block Printed Valentines

Time: 8:30-10:30 AM – Sign in at the Hartsbrook Hall Main Entrance

Where: South Mod, Music Room (enter the building from the ramp along the side of Piening Hall, the High School)

Come explore the magic of printmaking in our February Community Crafting workshop! We’ll take a look at the tools and blocks of different types of printmaking, and then try our own hands at carving and inking simple relief prints from easy-to-find, biodegradable materials. With paper, fabric, laces, and ribbon to enjoy, we’ll combine our prints with collage to create beautiful Valentine notecards. Participants will take home their handmade Valentines as well as lots of ideas for exploring printmaking with kids at home. And what vegetable did we find makes the sweetest block prints? Why, sweet potatoes, of course!

No experience is necessary, and all materials will be provided. A $2-3 donation towards materials is appreciated. Questions? Contact Rachel Beaupré (2nd and 5th grade parent) at or Karen Lavallee-Tente 413-210-8012 (text)
