Tertia Intensive Friday June 16-18, 2023
Tertia Intensive: Three Day class Starts at 10am Friday.
The Tertia classs examines the works on minerals and metals, which some consider to be the pinnacle of alchemical works. The class spans three days and covers the theories on metallic alchemy and also provides practical examination of both the wet and dry methods. We spend a whole day on the acetate path and a whole day on antimony. We also contrast these methods with alchemical works of India (rasashastra).
Robert Bartlett is the only teacher in the world who teaches on these subjects in such a detailed, practical format.
A few tents are available here and a sleeping cabin, first come first serve. Snacks provided. There are also several nearby hotels as well as casinos and dining, such as the beautiful Indian Themed Tulalip Casino and Hotel with many great restaurants inside offering delicious local fare and seafood. Enjoy the beauty of the NW and the Tulalip Indian Reservation. There is also a trailer space that sleeps two as well as two teepee tents and ample grounds for bringing your own tent.
