Diy Kombucha & Health Tonics

With Gillian Kozicki

Kombucha is an increasingly world-wide popular fermented health drink. Originating in China,
for thousands of years it has been used as a health tonic and was traditionally passed to the next generation as part of the community’s culture. In this workshop we will reconnect and revive the art of fermenting as part of our everyday lives, exploring the benefits and practicalities of making and maintaining Kombucha at home.

With the colder weather, comes the joy of the common cold and feeling under the weather! Ever wondered if there was a natural way to fight this off – turns out there is! Fermented tonics can help boost your immune system towards a more resilient you without nasty side effects. In this workshop we will explore the benefits and practicalities of making Beet Kvass, Master Tonic and Rejuvelac. You will learn the most secret health benefits to share with friends and family.


Gillian Kozicki is the passion behind Cultured Artisans. When conventional medicine failed to keep Gillian well, she investigated alternatives, starting with whole foods and a healthy organic diet. Her love of home prepared good food and supporting good health combined when she met Sandor Katz, as this is when she discovered the link between the two.

Gillian then threw herself into fermenting as an evolution of her permaculture interests. It connected so many areas of her life and quite simply, just made sense! Gillian has pursued it with vigour ever since and spent many hours finding a rhythm that is working and evolving for her, her family and the friends she ferments with.

Cultured Artisans was established to empower people to:

  • ferment at home
  • reconnect with their gut and community for better health
  • be creative with their ferments
  • enjoy the adventure of working with live cultures
  • to share the abundance with others
