HOBBY HORSES – Would you like to be part of the Hobby Horse Community? Here’s a little history! A group of us started making toys for the Waldorf School Children’s Christmas Fair about 35 years ago. One of these items was the famous hobby horse. I have continued to make them, perfecting them over the years, and now the original children who had them are buying them for their children! Talk about tradition! Without the Marketplace in the Christmas Fair/Winter Fair this year I thought I would offer them through the marketplace via the newsletter. I will bring some in if anyone wants to see them in the flesh. They are lively, so we’ll have to meet outdoors or in my home studio (just a kilometre away). Let me know what you’d like to see. I’ve attached some pictures. email@example.com Hobby Horse 1 Hobby Horse 2 Hobby Horse 4 Hobby Horse 7 (images will be removed if no longer available)

Each student will make their own set of juggling balls. Thank you to those students who have already given items to our humble cause! Any tennis players with a bag of used tennis balls? We need around 100. Does anyone have an old piggy bank? We will fill the tennis balls with about 10 coins/ball. The coins give the ball weight.
