Herbal Crafter Apprenticeship: We are always looking for kind, inquiring minds with able hands and eager smiles to come and apprentice for us. This apprenticeship teaches the art of herbal crafting through practice and hands-on making of our herbal goods. It includes packaging the goods, cleaning up after the job, and learning to make tea for oneself and one’s companions to lift our collective spirits. Please inquire if you are interested and we will invite you for a Trial Work Day at the start of next 3 months.
We are in the midst of our Fall Apprentice Session now! Our Apprentice Day is Thursdays from 1pm until 5pm, starting a new session in January 2018. Trial Workdays will happen early January. Please contact us for those dates to sign up. Apply for our Herbal Crafter Apprenticeship.
What is our Herbal Crafter Apprenticeship?
We are a group of naturally oriented women who craft herbal skincare products together at our workshop on 1301 Prospect Avenue in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn. Apprenticing gives you an opportunity to work with beautiful raw materials and herbs (including butters, oils, clays, hydrosols, etc) and help out with our product production. You will learn the properties of all the materials you are crafting as well as have the opportunity to ask questions of the experienced crew about remedies etc.
This work can be challenging and physically demanding, so we ask that applicants are in good health and able to contribute to the physical labor. Grating beeswax or pouring an oil infusing can be tiring! You are given an hourly product allowance according to the hours you work so that you can take home all the fruits of your labor and enjoy them. There is no financial compensation. This is a 3 month commitment. Please arrive promptly at 1pm and plan on staying until 5pm. Attendance is very important and you must make a firm commitment to come to each session, barring illness or an emergency. Apprentices who miss more than 1 session may lose their position to someone who can make the commitment.
Why do we hold a Trial?
We hold a trial workday to see if we are a good fit for each other. We have a very limited space for Apprentices and can only have a small group, but we encourage people to try for another session if they aren’t able to be accommodated in the current one. Attitude and work ethic are extremely important to us. We are looking for people who are eager to learn everything we have to teach and are willing to take on whatever the task at hand. Positive thought and action are most welcome. Our happiness depends upon each other’s company and loving kindness.
Here’s what to expect on your trial day: You can wear a lovely dress or cool pants, but you may get a little sweaty doing something like hoisting a box of bottles, washing out a vessel, and of course, herbal crafting! We will be making a product on your trial workday – it could be any of our herbal goods. Some of them require steady hands for pouring, some require careful measuring, others are just a matter of mixing and packaging, but all require love and care. You will be able to experience the personalities of our team members, in particular Sarah Deeley, our Senior Aesthetician who heads our Apprenticeship Program.
Holistic Aesthetician/Holistic Skin Care Specialist Apprenticeship: Requires a NYS Aesthetician’s License or equivalent. Our 245 hour program offers a complete tutelage in the art of Holistic Skin Care Services. Please inquire for details.
Do you think you would enjoy learning about herbs, skincare, and a holistic approach to health? Do you thrive in a serene and flexible environment? Come work with us! We hire most of our Herbal Crafters and Holistic Aestheticians from our apprenticeship programs. If you are interested in joining our community, please reach out!
