Workshops, classes & courses
I have been teaching classes for 11 years. I am very knowledgeable, fun and engaging teacher.
I regularly teach classes on:
- Herbal Medicine
- Making Herbal Remedies
- Natural Cosmetic-Making
- Wild Food Foraging
Have your own idea for a class?:
I also design bespoke packages. Let me know what you have in mind and I will aim to provide a class tailored for you e.g. bath bomb workshops for kids, pampering classes for mothers & daughters, activities for Hen Weekends, herbal medicine classes for qualified medical professionals etc.
Guided Walks & Land Surveys
I’ve been taking guided wild herb & food foraging walks for 7 years. These walks can be open to the general public or booked for specialist interest groups. They can be made suitable for adults, teenagers, children or a mixed group. They are even popular as a Hen Weekend activity! They can take place where I’m based in County Clare, at a suitable place in your County or you can book a private survey on your own land or garden.
I have a lot of media experience and am regularly asked by journalists to discuss current issues affecting herbal medicine.
Telly: I co-presented a hit RTE 1 series with celebrity chef Richard Corrigan and organic gardener Kitty Scully. This was a road-show that featured a weekly slot where I foraged for an herb that was then used to make a wild food, a remedy or a cosmetic. This series is often repeated on RTE. I also featured on the TG4 series Garrai Glas, again foraging for wild herbs and making a remedy from them.
Radio: I’ve been interviewed by various Irish radio stations about issues relating to herbal medicine. These interviews have been live and recorded.
Printed media: My work has featured in the Irish Times several times as well as in local press.
