Fall 2022 Program
Starting September 9, 2022, we will begin our Fall Herbal Crafter Apprenticeship! Availability is offered on a first come basis and space is limited.

Our Herbal Crafter Apprenticeship focuses on the how’s and why’s of our Functional Skincare Line along with some of our Apothecary products and Herbal Infusions.
Please note: Our apprenticeship is not a course in herbalism. There are many wonderful courses in traditional herbalism, but ours is focused on the essentials and secrets of crafting herbal skincare products.

In-person Cohort:
Location: Windsor Terrace Workshop
(1301 Prospect Ave, Brooklyn NY)
Meets Friday mornings (9am until 1pm) for instruction and Herbal Crafting: we’ll gather at our Windsor Terrace workshop for guided meditation and discussion about Brooklyn Herborium philosophy and methodology. We’ll share in functional wisdom. We’ll learn about holistic skincare, and we’ll craft skincare products together, too, working with beautiful raw materials.
You will get to take home one of each of the products we make together

Attendance Note: Attendance is important. Please commit to attend every session, barring illness or an emergency, as it is a wonderful benefit to you.
