REGISTER: below. Space is limited. This workshop repeats every six months.

In this workshop by request, Make Balms and Salves for Everything!, we'll discuss the ancient art and science of making salves, explore traditional ingredients and how they "work", then we'll make a balm to suit our purposes: for wounded, and/or rashy, and/or eczemic and/or blistered skin to take home.

As an experiment, in order to gather as many people together who want to learn,
and in the hopes of earning a living wage,
I am offering my introductory workshops for a limited time
at Pay-What-Feels-Right rates. To learn more about the costs and the process please go here:

TO KEEP YOUR SPOT: I ask you to pay at least $10 + HST to cover your materials costs and to hold your spot. You may pay more to hold your spot, or even pay in full if you are able to and it feels right. The $10 + HST is not refundable or transferable to another date because I bought the materials, and I showed up.

AT THE END OF THE WORKSHOP I WILL ASK YOU TO PAY WHAT FEELS RIGHT FOR OUR LABOUR. Consider that we spend at least two hours planning, promoting, getting ready and cleaning up for every hour of live workshop. While it's easy to figure out how much to tip a server because the standard is 15%, we have less practice figuring out what to pay for an experience. Here is some guidance:
* Prices for similar DIY workshops range from $25 to $170!
* Consider paying me what you are paid. If you are paid $20 an hour, isn't it fair to pay me $20 an hour?
* Consider what the experience was worth to you. Did you have fun? Did you learn a lot? How useful is what you learned and made?
* At different times and for different groups I have charged $25 to $80 per 2 hour workshop, with an average of $40 per participant.

GROUP RATES: *$20 minimum commitment per participant is the group rate. When you register 3 or more participants, I will adjust your rate to $20 each. Unless you or your participants cannot afford more, please bring an honorarium to the workshop.

HST 13% is applied when you check out. Donations given at the end of the workshop will not be taxed, but I can give you a receipt if your contribution is not anonymous.

Repeats every 6 months on the first Tuesday until Sun Dec 31 2017 .
2016/12/06 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm
2017/06/06 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm
