About the event

Join Nettie Black for an extended Rongoā Balms workshop. Take a dive into this special mātauranga Maori workshop! Now with four hours, you'll have more time to absorb Nettie's wealth of knowledge and to experiment with and craft your balms.

Nettie will guide you through karakira and tikanga for harvesting your kawakawa. In her workshop you will learn how to make beautiful balms for your first aid kit and for family care, using native plants. You'll also learn about simple methods and tools for infusing medicinal plants with oil as well as their benefits.
