Solihull Workshops 2018


Winter workshops are held in Solihull on a Saturday. They start at 10am and finish at 2pm including a shared lunch. Numbers are limited on a first come first served basis.

Spring to Autumn Workshops at the Sanctuary - click here


January 13 - Herbs in hot water

February 10 - Preparing for spring with herbs

November 10 - Creating Anti-viral vinegars

December 8 - Preparing a winter pharmacy


Workshops will run from 10am - 2pm with a shared lunch (i.e. bring something to share).


The workshops are funded by voluntary donations. Each workshop costs around 40 to deliver and most people donate between 5 and 30 per session. If you want to take a herbal preparation away with you, you need to bring vodka, cider vinegar and/or honey to each workshop. Donations of clean jam jars are always welcome, as well as extra brandy, cider vinegar and vodka!


We offer a pickup from Solihull Station (in the winter) on workshop days. Please add something to your donation to cover this cost.
