Nordic Herbals

Course Overview

Healing traditions, like all craft, reflect the landscape and stories of the people who create them. Explore Norse and Sami-inspired herbal medicine in this workshop based around the handcrafting of seven herbal medicines, each tethered to a particular story and made from northern plants. Rooted in her own Nordic ancestry, Gigi will explore the sacred elder tree, Birkana, rune stones, and reindeer medicine. Students will handcraft seven herbal items to sustain them through the long northern winter: elderberry syrup, fireweed flower essence, cedar sauna blend, birch botanical liniment, and others. In the spirit of Eir, the traditional Norse goddess of healing, students will create a medicine bundle to accompany them through the darkest season.
