Get hands-on at home with medical history and Handmade Apothecary with a brand new creative children’s workshop delivered live online.
Did you know that the Royal College of Physicians used to prescribe eating plenty of onions for healing coughs? Or that dandelions were given to help you go to the loo? Join Kim Walker and Vicky Chown of Handmade Apothecary to discover how herbs were used as medicines in past centuries, as well as today. In this interactive, online session you will go on a plant hunt, learn how to make an authentic 18th century remedy and make your own herbarium to preserve plants and flowers.
Handmade Apothecary is run by Kim Walker and Vicky Chown, both passionate about sharing the lost, traditional knowledge of herbs with others through running workshops, walks and talks on herbal remedy making, natural beauty and botany. Their aim is to help others to re-establish a bond with nature and use plants and natural ingredients for health, home and self-care.
£4.50 (plus the Eventbrite booking fee). Tickets are limited and pre-booking is essential.
