This is class is part of our ever-popular Medicine Maker series. Now that we have a larger venue, we can offer this class as a stand-alone workshop in addition to the buying the whole series! In it, we learn techniques for making different types of medicines in the western herbalism style.
In this class, we will demonstrate the different ways of tincturing: maceration by folk method, maceration by weight-to-volume method, and percolation. We will learn how to do the math to make our medicines!
We learn about which herbs are not good to tincture, the difference between tinctures and other extracts, how to tincture fresh versus dried herbs, and what strength alcohol to use.
Students make a tincture of their own to take home as well as get worksheets on how to make their own creations at home.
Class is $50 and pre-registration is necessary.
