DIY Lavender Crafts Workshop
Friday, July 7, 2023
3 pm – 5 pm
If you love all things lavender, join us for an afternoon of DIY Lavender Crafts! Enjoy experimenting with using lavender to warm our bodies, scent our houses, and feed our families. We will make lavender sachets, herbes de Provence, lavender sugar, lavender oil, and lavender infused syrup for summer cocktails.
Lavender has a wonderful scent that can be used to help you relax, sleep better at night, and even reduce your stress levels. It is one of the most common aromatherapy herbs used to promote relaxation and balance positive energy.
Learn some lavender history and growing tips during a walk to our lavender bed in the Museum Herb Garden with Happy Griffiths, Museum Herbalist Emeritus, Susan Quinlan, Museum Garden Coordinator, and Nan Munsey, Museum Village Gardener.
Enjoy lavender refreshments and take home recipes and your handmade goodies!
“Lavender, sweet lavender,
A scented purple haze.
With radiant lilac flowers,
I stand and look amazed.”
