Plants Infused ~ How To Make A Herbal Balm
February 16 @ 12:00 pm - February 17 @ 5:00 pm$40 – $50
In partnership with the Sustainable Living Festival 2019, we introduce this exciting new workshop ‘Plants Infused’.
In this rewilding workshop participants learn how to make their own herbal body balm using local native plants and ‘weeds’ from start to finish. Through playful and sensory interaction with the plants participants are empowered with skill and knowledge as they reconnect to the land and themselves.
All materials will be provided as well as nourishing herbal infusions for participants to sip on throughout the workshop.
