Waldorf Family Summer Wheel
This stunningly illustrated Summer wheel by Waldorf Family is designed to remind us of the beauty and energy of the summer season and its celebrations. Endless days spent in nature surrounded by wildflowers and joyful wildlife, picnics and games with family and good friends. This carefree illustration in happy, summer colours takes children and adults on a journey through the summer festivals, ultimately to the centre, towards the energy and celebration of St Johns tide, Summer Solstice and Litha.
In the Waldorf Tradition the St John Fire or midsummer is traditionally the biggest festival in this season. A large bonfire is built and the whole community gather to sign and celebrate midsummer and all the bountiful harvest yet to come. The little ones wear flower crowns and sing summer songs and once the fire has burnt down to cinders the big children take turns to jump over the fire. The tradition symbolises leaving all that you don’t want behind and jumping into the future with a clean slate and fresh energy.
Printed on FSC plywood with non-toxic inks. This wheel comes in a fully recyclable cardboard presentation box.
Size: 29.5 cm diameter and 0.9 cm tick
