Samhain Herbology Workshop


Join my special Samhain workshop to create magical herbal gifts, lotions and potions and to explore the herbology of autumn.

Schellingwoude apples

We will spend over 4 hours in and around my Schellingwoude volkstuin (a wild ecological garden with wooden house, log fire etc). It is in a beautiful nature oriented setting, within the A10, along bus route 37 and far from the business of the city.

This small group workshop is open to anyone who is interested in deepening their connection with nature. It is also a perfect opportunity for those who are contemplating my apprenticeship,  to come and meet me as we immerse ourselves in seasonal herbal work.  All levels of experience are welcome!

We will:

  • Walk and forage through wooded lanes, identifying edible, medicinal and poisonous leaves, roots and fruits.
  • Craft lotions, potions and natural gifts from herbs, which will see you through until spring.

Bread of the dead

Full of bounty, shifting colours and scents, autumn’s creeping darkness brings a welcome depth of mystery to our lives. It is the perfect time to create tasty, crafty and intriguing preparations which you can share with friends throughout winter. Samhain is an extra special time in autumn where the veil between worlds is said to be at its most thin. During the workshop,  those who are interested will also explore what that means.
