Herb Plants

Workshops

Workshops are run in carefully chosen, beautiful venues in Dorset. Each workshop will focus on a specific topic (for example skin care or herbs for winter survival). During the workshop we will take a gentle meander to discover seasonal plants, look at identifying features and cover laws and best practise for wild harvest. We explore the body system(s) we are focussing on caring for; looking at how they function, what can go awry and how to treat it. We take some time to look at creating various products (exact specifications depend on the nature of the workshop), shelf life and shelf stability and make sure you have something lovely to take away.

Places are limited to 8 participants per workshop, making sure each person is able to enjoy the right amount of attention and really maximise their learning.

Workshops are approximately 4 hours in duration unless otherwise stated, all materials and refreshments are included in the price given. Please see the bottom of the page for booking information.

Please note that due to time required to make some products, we will go through the steps in the workshop and you will be provided with a finished version to take away and enjoy.
