CREATING SPACES – the art of the encounter

A five day residential open to all!

Join us for five days of inspiration and rejuvenation!


19 to 23 April 2022

Education needs both space and time: it is a journey, not a race.

The WESTT students and tutors take great pleasure in inviting you on a short trip: our Easter course is open to all students, parents and teachers for a short week of encounter and exploration.

We offer artistic experiences (no previous skills required), inspiring lectures, joyful movement and the chance to make new acquaintances and rediscover old friendships.

Ringwood Waldorf School is an established Centre for Steiner Waldorf Education in the New Forest, offering a safe, beautiful and inspirational environment for children and young people from 18 months to 18 years.

The WESTT course is the largest UK centre for Steiner Waldorf Teacher Education. It grew out of Emerson College in Sussex, operated at Wynstones School in Gloucester and has now found its new Hampshire home in Ringwood.

Accommodation: there are limited Bed and Breakfast places with local families, a wide choice of inns and hotels and the possibility of camping on site. Lunches and suppers are freshly cooked on site and will be vegetarian and vegan.

Cost:  £ 200 courses only, £ 250 courses and food
