About the Teachers:
Australian-native but Berlin-grown, Tash is a qualified herbalist whose work combines herbalism, cooking, art, and writing. She is the founder of Avant-Garden Life a project which focuses on local herbalism and bringing food back to its traditional grassroots methods through sustainable and circular practices. Her teaching is intuitive and sensory. She has held workshops on Foraging, herbalism, fermentation, intuitive cooking, created art pieces and installations inspiring people to delve deeper into the magical world of plants. Teaching and exploring the different ways we can re-connect with nature.
Idun is a herbalist with roots in the northern part of Sweden. During the years she has continually given courses in herbalism, both in Sweden and Germany. She has a deep-rooted passion for the Natural World and knows how immensely important it is that we all cultivate our own relationship to nature and our own bodies as an integral part of the sensitive and resilient ecosystem we are made of. She loves to empower others in the learning of knowing the language of plants, their names, characteristics and gifts. It is an everlasting source of healing, learning and connection. To have the embodied skills of how to prepare our own remedies and medicines from plants is a humbling and wild path.
This collaboration between Tash and Idun is a new project that we call Sensory academy. We imagine this to be a place to explore the world of plants, the depth of the inner and other nature, our curious senses, the knowledge of our ancestors and the cycles of the year. Together we evolve, together we grow.
”We can sense the world around us only because we are entirely a part of this world. We can feel the tangible textures, sounds, and shapes of the biosphere because we are tangible, resonant, audible shapes in our own rights.”
