About the event

Take your crystal knowledge to the next level in just two hours!

Many people feel drawn to crystals but they don’t know why. In this workshop, those reasons will become clear. After all, the more you know about crystals, the more you will fall in love with them.

Our workshop facilitator, Gemma, has many years of experience working with crystals & is the author of The Crystal Apothecary, published last year. In this two hour workshop, she will impart as much of her knowledge as she can, so you can go from beginner to a mini crystal expert in that short space of time.

By the end of the workshop you will know:

  • What crystals are perfect for you to work with personally.
  • Why crystals are good for us and the science behind how crystal healing works.
  • The different ways to pick a crystal and the best way to make sure your choice is perfect for you.
  • What the different colours of a crystal mean.
  • What the different shapes and formations mean.
  • How the way a crystal is formed affects its properties.
  • A method to interpret a crystal without the need for a crystal book.
  • What to look out for so you purchase the best crystal specimens.
  • How to cleanse and charge your crystals.
  • Where to place your new crystal in your home.
  • The different ways you can work with crystals.

Gemma’s clear and concise explanation of both the science and ancient knowledge of crystal healing, is easily digestible. We welcome you to come along and see how relevant in today’s society this ancient knowledge still is.

Who is the workshop for?

Whether you have never bought a crystal before or you have a room full of them, this workshop will help take your knowledge to the next level. You do not need any previous experience working with crystals, all you need to know is that you’re drawn to them, and you would like to learn more.

Do I need to bring anything?

We recommend having a pen and paper to hand (optional).
