Our Little Shop at York Steiner School
Grandparents love it as much as the kids do
Our Little Shop probably isn’t the first place you’d think of when it comes to picking up craft pieces for your littles ones or yourself. Tucked into the entrance of York Steiner School, it’s definitely worth seeking out for wonderful natural products like 100% wool felt and fleece for wet and dry felting, plant-derived dyes, Stockmar beeswax crayon blocks and play cloths for capes or dens.
You can also pick up Waldorf dolls and wooden figures from both Grimm's Spiel & Holz, and Ostheimer – both of which craft stimulating toys created to develop the imagination and encourage creative play. They also have a maker’s table dedicated to showcasing local art for sale and donate 20% of the profits to the school, so encourage artists to get involved.
“We welcome everyone here and we’d love for more people to discover our range of crafts, toys, snacks (perfect for after-school nibbles) and pocket money treats.”
