The Artery - The Incubator Creative Village, 159 17th Ave, Tauranga

In this workshop you will learn how to make balm for your first aid kit and family care with native plants. We will learn karakia and tikanga around harvesting. Learn about simple methods and tools for infusing medicinal plants with oil and their benefits.

All materials provided. You'll leave with the packaged balms you make. Nettie Black will be your facilitating tutor for this workshop. Some of you may already know her products, soaps, balms, and oils range we have available at Okorore. Nettie had been a tutor for many different disciplines over the years: plant regeneration, pest control flora and fauna, rocking, sea kayak, rafting, orienteering, river kayaking, tramping, deep sea caving, sea trawler mahi, managing backpackers, raising sea chickens, duck survey and tagging. Nettie has a deep passion for nature and caring about people and is a powerhouse of knowledge when it comes to native plants and their medicinal purposes. She is very patient and laid back. You will have a great time at her workshop.

Please note: You are only allowed to be booked into one subsidised workshop. The booking system will go live 10 days prior to the workshop starting. If you are unable to make the workshop, please let us know immediately so we can let someone else go instead.
