Saturday 17th October, Roots & Resins: Medicine & Magic

The Hirsel Arts & Crafts Centre  TD12 4LW 10.15am-1pm   £45.00 


This is the time of year to explore the benefits of plant roots and tree resins, their traditional medicine and magic. During this workshop we will make ointment, decoctions, troches, incense, smudging sticks, and amulets.

This was a popular workshop last autumn and we are pleased to return to The Hirsel again this year as it is just the perfect place to hold it.

Please don’t wear your best clothes. Bring an apron, gardening gloves and secateurs, if you have them. There will be some available to borrow on the day. Dress for the weather as we will be outside for a short time making our smudge sticks.

Teas and coffees will be available during the workshop on a self-service basis. Please bring a packed lunch or visit the Cottage Tearoom.

Free parking for the workshop.  Workshop fee £45.00
