Make your Own Herbal Remedies Workshop

Wednesday 15 June: 10am - 12pm & 1pm - 3pm

We are running a series of free workshops throughout 2022 as part of The Skell Valley Project.

The Skell Valley Project is an innovative, four-year scheme co-led by the National Trust and Nidderdale AONB to rejuvenate the 12 miles of the River Skell in North Yorkshire. Through this £2.5 million project, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund and others, the project will work with local farmers, landowners and volunteer groups. Together, they will improve the landscape’s resilience to climate change, help nature to thrive, protect and conserve heritage and increase people’s access to green spaces following the coronavirus pandemic.

Our next workshops will take place on Wednesday 15 June (10am-12pm & 1pm-3pm) at the Workhouse Museum & Garden and will explore herbal remedies. Join Medical Herbalist, Bel Charlesworth to find out how common garden herbs, like peppermint, sage and calendula, can be used to treat everyday ailments by making herbal infusions and balms. You will have the opportunity to make your own beeswax-based balm and blend your own Relaxation tea to take home.

There are just twelve places on each workshop, to take part please email [email protected] detailing which workshop you would like to take part in and how many spaces you require. Unfortunately this workshop is not suitable for young children.
