Come join us as we learn to create a variety of botanical medicines using many native Washington 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 they helped prepare.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
-Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic will students be required to wear face masks during class? Yes...and this policy is non-negotiable. Given the situation here in the U.S. this is likely to be the case for quite some time unfortunately.
-So I paid the class fee via PayPal...am I now officially registered and on the roster? Yes, your spot in class is now secure. PayPal will not accept online payments when a class is already sold out. Your payment confirmation/receipt has been sent to the email address associated with your account.
-Can I bring my dog? Sorry, absolutely NO pets (for a litany of reasons).
-Is it OK to bring my child? My 8-hour adult-level workshops are in no way suitable for children. Trust me: they would be bored to tears.
-I see that hundreds/thousands of people have clicked on "interested and/or going" for this event...what are your class size limits? Don't take Facebook numbers too seriously folks...I cap these types of workshops at around 25 students :) That said, it IS true that my classes tend to fill to capacity months ahead of time...so procrastination is not recommended if you are hoping to secure a spot.
-When should I expect to receive directions, carpool info, and other more specific class details? As is CLEARLY stated in the above class description: "Detailed directions and other more specific class info (including carpool networking) will be emailed out to the registered/paid students by August 4. IMPORTANT NOTE: this message will be sent to the email associated with your PayPal transaction (and for some people this may not be their primary email)."
