With Tellur Fenner
Come join us as we learn to create a variety of botanical medicines using many native California plants. During this intensive class we will learn the fundamental methods for making a number of preparations, including: teas, tinctures, herbal oils, salves, liniments, and syrups. Starting with an overview of some basic principles of plant chemistry, we will examine different extraction methods while learning when they can be best applied. The remainder of the class will be devoted to preparing a number of different herbal products, giving us a chance to put theory into practice. This is an interactive class, so please come ready to get your hands dirty while having a lot of fun! All materials will be provided and each student will leave with a product s/he helped prepare.
