Elderberry for Winter Wellness
Updated: Oct 10
Tuesday, November 14th, 2023 * 5:15-8:30pm * Fireweed Community Woodshop
This class is part of a series in collaboration with print-making artist Jessie Merriam, in which we look at a single plant from many angles. Just in time for cold and flu and Covid season, we'll be offering a class focused on the immune-boosting powerhouse Elderberry (Sambucas nigra/canadensis)!
Students will learn the history, botany, and lore of this plant, and hear common as well as the lesser-known uses for this powerful yet gentle remedy. We'll craft an elderberry tincture for students to take home, and carve our own elderberry-inspired block-prints using an image of Jessie's design.
A variety of paper will be provided. Students are encouraged to bring fabric/tote bags/clothing to print on if they like.
Additional elderberry remedies will be available for sale at the end of class.
