P R I M I T I V K O L L E K T I V presents ‘Sustainability, Circularity & Herbalism’, a series of workshops in collaboration with Isla Coffee Berlin.
The series is focused on sharing traditional, environmental and practical insights within herbalism in the prevention of waste. We work with raw and wild ingredients, processed with our hands and aimed at empowering others to restore their own well-being and live sustainably through practical skills rooted in primitive wisdom.
The ancient practice of infusing medicinal plant dyes into cloth can promote healing of the body and mind when worn as clothing, used as bedding, or in home interiors. We will share knowledge of locally found medicinal plants, extracting their dyes and creating powerful healing infusions for natural fibres.
Each workshop is two-part: beginning with a presentation and discussion around the beneficial uses of specific plant specimens, followed by a hands-on processing and crafting.
The workshops will be taught in English (with German translation)
Isla Café Berlin, Hermannstraße 37, 12049 Berlin Neukölln U8 Boddinstraße
per workshop – €40
for the entire series – €150
