Pat's Herbal Course and Workshops

Click below to see the different types of workshops/courses Pat offers.
Correspondence courses are available for purchase online or by calling/email us. $40 per module.

Information SheetCorrespondence Course Info

The course is made up of 11 Workshops covering a wide variety of subjects. It is based on 23 years of teaching and 20 years of Practice as a Herbalist.  At the end of the course you will feel empowered to use natural therapies to look after yourself and your loved ones. All workshops can be taught as a one off.  Popular ones are: Weeds and their uses, Beauty from natural products, Soaps, shampoos and washing gel and Creating a First Aid kit. 

I have always endeavoured to make my workshops available to all walks of life thus have kept my fees reasonable. However to do this each workshop must have a minimum of 12 and maximum of 20 students.

All workshops have a similar structure. We start by learning about the herbs, related subjects and the items we’re making and later on we make our products. After deciding what you’d like to make we break into groups and create the products which are divided up for everyone to take home. For a class of 12 students there will be 6 items made and if the class is larger we will make more items unless a certain project needs more students. For example in the Weed workshop we make the Wild Weed ointment which needs a large group due to the number of herbs involved.

Cost/workshop is $60/student. You will make approximately $60 worth of products to take home. Costs may vary if travel is extensive or if I have to pay for the venue.

All ingredients are included in the cost, you only have to bring your own jars or bottles or buy them from me at cost price. A cutting board and your own sharp knife are optional as I do bring some. Bring paper and pen for notes, lunch to share and if not supplied own cup, plate and cutlery. I will supply labels and sealable bags.  Wear clothes you feel comfortable in and don’t mind getting dirty. Bring a sense of humour, your thirst for new knowledge and your ability to share your own knowledge with others. I have outlined each workshop and included what we make. This may vary according to the seasons and availability of the materials, e.g. herbs.

(* As shown on the information sheet, I have put an asterix next to additional items that are only made if I have a larger class.)
