Jekka's Master Classes
Spend the day at Jekka’s and experience our unique setting and the passion we have for herbs. At Jekka’s we aim to provide a variety of master classes to suit everyone from the amateur to the enthusiast. Our master classes are very hands on and cover a variety of disciplines from art and food to horticulture. You will leave with a new understanding and passion for herbs.
New for 2019
We are delighted to be adding art master classes taught by Hannah and the herb food master classes by Alistair. Many of you may have met Hannah and Alistair at the farm during an Open day or at one of our Master classes. Growing up on the herb farm had a significant impact on both of their lives but in very different ways, Hannah became a Botanical Illustrator and Alistair trained as a Chef after completing a Doctorate in Climate Change. In 2019 they will be sharing their passion & knowledge for Art and Food in a new series of classes.
Our master classes are a full day and limited to 12 people to ensure everyone gets the most of the day. Lunch is provided as well as afternoon refreshments of Jekka’s herbal infusions and homemade cake. Please let us know in advance if you have any dietary requirements.
Masterclasses are from 10am to 4.00pm
All prices include lunch and refreshments.
