Spring Tonic Tea Blending Workshop at the Herb Shoppe


What’s Happening?

Harness the vitality that the Spring Equinox ushers in with the joy-filled container of herbal tea blending. Participants will be invited to sample a Spring Tonic tea blend formulated by workshop author and facilitator, Artemis Divine, sample simple teas of seven tonifying springtime plants that support energetic and physical systems, reflect on ways that plants can help initiate new patterns and rituals in our day to day life, learn basic vocabulary and herbal tea blending principles, and get the opportunity to formulate a custom tea blend with the herbs provided.

Artemis’ practice of herbalism draws mainly from traditional western plant medicine practices and principles, with an emphasis on the ways that plants can help individuals engage with both the energetic and applied properties of medicinal plants. Growing their own medicinal plants and blending herbal teas are the ways they prefer to practice plant medicine in daily life. They believe we can learn a lot about our bodies and plants, as well as internal and external ecosystems, from establishing an intentional and consistent relationship with plants.

To listen to the wisdom of plants is a careful, quiet, and enduring journey.

Artemis lives and works in their hometown of Portland, OR. Their home studio practice encompasses work with painting, soft-sculpture, fiber, healing plants, and a study of illustrated divinatory traditions. Themes within their work manifest the divine, wounded, surreal, and everyday contradictions of a lived human experience. Public art projects include Park It!, a temporary group installation in Madison Wisconsin, and Bridge for Blankets, an installation for Portland's Broadway Bridge Centennial. Creative contributions as a member of the international, collaborative collective, Expanded Draught have concluded. Recent solo and group exhibitions include Archer Gallery | Clark College, Paragon Gallery, Chehalem Cultural Center, and Wolff Gallery. They are currently developing a series of hand painted and embroidered piece for an original tarot deck, the Radicle Pleasures Tarot.
