"Avoid correcting your kids design or stitches"? So, in other words, they aren't supposed to actually be taught anything in this class, they just need to feel good that they made something, even if it is wrong?
That's what's wrong with the world today, no expectations, no discipline or teaching, just make sure the kids have good self esteem. No wonder the Chinese are eating our lunch in education.

I think rather than that they mean there is no wrong way. As in artistic creativity. If the stitches come out then they learned that they did it not quite right. It's arts and crafts, not algebra.

"That's what's wrong with the world ... "? "Gay"? Wow, I think what's REALLY wrong with the world is that people like these commenters are so narrow and mean-spirited. The point of the article is to showcase an activity that gets people out of the house, gets families to do something together, and gets people thinking about ways to reuse all the crap we have lying around. If it's "gay" - I'll take it. If it means a couple of hours of creativity that will help kids think beyond the test-score obsessed school system - I'l take that, too. My guess is that the children who attend classes like these in fact end up "eating the lunch" of people like More Bars in More Places.(And doesn't that person's screen name say it all?!)

Before people bash this, they should read up on Waldorf schools and education.
According to a recent study of Waldorf graduates:
94% attended college or university
47% chose humanities or arts as a major
42% chose sciences or math as a major
89% are highly satisfied in choice of occupation
91% are active in lifelong education
92% placed a high value on critical thinking
90% highly values tolerance of other viewpoints
