Mercurius has moved to Adelaide and joined with Wooden Playroom and the Oskars Wooden Ark family!
We remain committed to supporting our Schools, Early Learning Centres, Home School communities and Professionals with the provision of high quality Educational, Art and Craft products.
Our customer service team are staying on and we are all looking forward to the next phase of the Mercurius journey. Thank you all for your support over the past years, and your support going forward.
What an exciting time ahead!
It is through our senses that we connect to the world around us.
Our senses are as varied as our personalities. We might experience the world through finely tuned subtle senses, senses that are louder in nature, or even senses that appear quietly unaware of their surroundings. Our senses are developing even before birth, and continue to develop and become ever more refined throughout childhood, our teenage years and into 'adulthood'.
At Mercurius, we select our products to be as close to nature as possible, while retaining a consciousness around quality, usability, environment, function and sensory effect. The contribution to healthy sensory development is paramount to what lives in all of our products. This is bought into the mix of ingredients, the colour of our pigments, the aroma of the finished product and the softness or hardness of the article itself. Every aspect of every product has an effect and a purpose.
Waldorf and Steiner schools around the world recognise the importance of the developing senses, with a curriculum centred around pedagogical development. Stockmar, Mercurius International and Mercurius Australia are companies that were born out of a vision to create, supply and provide access to products that support the work of a pedagogical centred education, and hence the healthy development of the senses.
We partner with socially and environmentally conscious businesses to offer products of aesthetic beauty, outstanding craftsmanship, high quality and long-lasting durability.
At Mercurius Australia we are committed to consciously work in our part of the world, providing products that support the holistic development of the child, through education, art and play, both within our schools and within our homes. If you would like to know more about any of our products, or have any questions relating to supporting the developing senses through art and education, please be in touch.
Education and Art to bring meaning to Head, Heart and Hands ... Art that makes Sense
