Artsy Friday nights in August can easily be spend indoors and outdoors, as at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, visitors can not only enjoy drinks, music, snacks and varied entertainment (amongst the beautiful collection of paintings) but also guided tours through Amsterdam.
Their theme for August is Binnen en Buiten, (Inside and Outside) and this friday, august 30th, from 6 till 10 pm, the atelier (workshop area) of the Museum will be transformed into a plant filled studio and herbal workshop.
Here, visitors can come to learn and taste some edible and mind altering plants, which Vincent van Gogh used, and whom still grow in Amsterdam today.
You will sample some urban foraged delights and learn how to make your own Absinthe, herbal honeys and other interesting things.
The rest of the time will be devoted to teaching individual visitors how to find and use local plants.
Sounds like a great way to learn the foraging rules for harvesting safely, ethically and legally.
Eat, Drink and be Merry!
Entrance is free to Museumjaarkaart holders. Usual entrance fee to others.
