Our Kitchen Witchery classes are a great way to begin your herbal journey or learn new ways to incorporate herbs into your everyday life!
Over the course of two Saturdays we will explore six topics on herbal preparations, learning the reasons why we utilize each and how to prepare them. Each day we will make 6-9 handmade herbal goodies for students to take home. You’ll leave feeling inspired and empowered to work with plants in new ways!
This course is open to anyone interested in learning about herbs- no previous experience necessary.
Class is split over 2 Saturdays- you can choose to attend one day or both- with a discount for signing up for both at once!
