Introduction to herbal medicine - weekend courses

In-person course
Phil - - #34611

I booked this course for my Wife's birthday and we both thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Since we've both been so hermit like since COVID appeared, the informal yet risk-aware atmosphere made it easier to just relax and enjoy the course .... it was a lovely group of folks attending too.

Response from Rowan Mconegal:

So pleased to hear you enjoyed the course phil, and to read your positive comments 😊 many thanks

Although primarily I went with my daughter on this course, I found it absolutely fascinating. Rowan's immensely knowledgeable and informal approach was ideal. Walking around the wonderful garden being shown how to identify different plants and plant families and then how to use them was an eye opener. I shall definitely be making fresh herbal teas more. I have already used one of the products we made on my aching back with great results.

If you enjoy hands on this is the course for you. Rowan was a fountain of knowledge and if she didn’t know something would try to find out. I felt extremely comfortable and welcomed. I travelled several hours to attend and it was well worth the journey.
I have come away with a basic understanding of herbs and can identify some. I am now eyeballing every plant I see and wondering if I can put it in tea!

The two day course was an informative, interesting and fun hands-on introduction to the world of natural fragrances and the history of perfumery. It was fascinating to explore the sense of smell which can be taken for granted and experience the different characteristics of a wide range of naturally occurring scents derived from plants and learn about the extraction of oils and resins.
The course took place in a light-filled and calm studio set in a wonderful garden.
Thank you Rowan.

I felt guided every step of the way through the one day course, Rowan is a highly competent and knowledgeable Japanese Woodblock Print Teacher. It was a great achievement for us all to produce our own non-toxic prints, I am looking forward to attending the two day course with Rowan.

I highly recommend attending Rowans herbal courses. Rowan is an expert in her field and a huge asset for Herefordshire. At a time when we all need to improve our self care & reduce dependence on the NHS/social care services which are so stretched, I feel attending Rowans courses & using the skills she teaches you, will massively improve your health & well being for the future

What a great course this was (October 2018)! Looking forward to booking the next one in the summer.
Since attending the course I have made my own handcreams and ointments which my husband loves after a day working in the woods. Well worthwhile and I'll always have Christmas and birthday presents covered now! Also made some great friends ;)

Marion Campbell - - #19424

It was a delight to experience a new form of printmaking using organic materials and media. Rowan prepared good notes for the course in advance and supported the practical work with her enthusiasm for the art form and for her time spent developing her skill in Japan.

Response from Rowan Mconegal:

Thanks for your feedback Marion, much appreciated. I'm so pleased that you have enjoyed the courses that you have come on.

I came on this course in about 2012 and enjoyed it very much. Rowan is very good at encouraging you to do the preparing yourself, which did give me confidence in trying it at home. In fact, over this last Christmas, my daughter insisted we made the moisturiser that I had first made with Rowan! She has taken a few pots home.

Response from Rowan Mconegal:

Thanks Ellie, so glad that you found it useful!
