About the Instructor

Mandi Yates-Ellwood

Mandi is wife, mother to three, and lover of all things natural. Her first foray into wild-crafting and herbal concoctions was making ‘witches brew’ in her backyard at the ripe age of five, and since then she has always had a bit of earth to grow things. In her youth, after earning a degree in Culinary Sciences from Johnson and Wales, she became interested in using and growing many different herbs for both medicine and cooking. As a mother, she has concentrated on the uses of common herbs for first aid, i.e. salves for burns, bug bites, and cuts. Currently, Mandi is focusing on using herbs as a preventative in staving off memory changes, hypertension, and other preventable illnesses. When she is not wild-crafting or parenting, she creates textile art in the form of needle-felted Story Dolls. Mandi loves sharing this art form with others to show that wool can be formed just as easily as working with clay or other mediums.
