Hapa Zome Botanicals

October 5, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Create a pattern with leaves and flowers on textiles that will be made into herbal sachets.

This workshop will be taught twice on the same day at 10:00am-1:00pm & 2:00pm-5:00pm

In this fun three-hour workshop with Rio, you will learn the simple art of Hapa Zome, which is to pound plants to give forth color and print with harvested leaves and flowers. Together we will hammer our way through the harvest and create mandalas that will be made into herbal sachets. Rio will also give alternative methods to shift colors of each fabric. The second part of this workshop will be understanding the medicinal, magical, and otherwise functional properties of various herbs that have been grown and harvested at a farm in Oregon by Deb Accurdi, who is the creator of plant apothecaries (Chicken Coop Botanicals). With this knowledge, you can decide what to fill in your sachet based on what will serve and heal you. Everyone will leave with several samples plus a finished sachet along with a booklet of herbs and their uses.

Herbal teas and snacks will be served. Please note there are two classes to choose from.
