Delve into the magical world of herbs with 4 Potion Clubs over the summer. Each can be enjoyed on their own or as part of a series. With medical herbalist Davina Hopkinson in charge the clubs are full of surprises. Davina has created a new fun and fascinating club for children (guide 8 – 12 years) who want to delve into the intriguing world of plants. This is the chance to discover, in a fun and magical way, the health benefits of plants – an exploration that will set them up for a lifetime!
With 4 interactive sessions in 2019, each one unique, in April, May, July and August, learn all about local plants you find in the garden, hedgerows, woods and fields and go out to forage for some of them. Each month explore which plants are growing and how they can be turned into potions to look after your body and your brain – like the spring tonics to give your body a kick start after winter, or the roots and berries of autumn to make cold and flu remedies, or plants to help you stay calm and concentrate better like lemon balm.
From plants to help sore tummies and even help you sleep, we’ll choose a plant of the month, explore what it does, how it does it and turn it into a real life effective potion! You’ll be able to record your recipes in your own potion book, along with your thoughts and artwork.
With some scintillating history (herbal medicine does go back 60,000 years!) and telling of mysterious magical folktales, there’ll be plenty of safe health-giving body-protective potion-making.
£15 or £25 for two children, with a discount for booking the whole course. Please bring your own packed lunch.
