ST. AUGUSTINE, FL – The St. Augustine Amphitheatre will partner with local business owners to offer a series of workshops that will teach “lost skills” such as apothecary and leather crafting.

The business are Southern Roots Apothecary, Small Batch Farms, The Conservatorie, The Present Moment Café, Green Harmony Aromatherapy and Silverfox Leather Shop.

The “Lost Skills Workshop Series” will begin Sept. 23 and continue through Oct. 2. See the list of workshops below.

The Lost Skills Workshop Series is a diverse set of community-based workshops that aim to create a hands-on, skill-sharing experience that encourages creativity, community and the growth of local businesses in a unique new gathering space at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, 1340 C A1A South.

“St. Augustine is increasingly becoming a quintessential place that is able to embrace the past, while putting a modern and unique take on it without sacrificing authenticity or quality,” said Ryan Murphy, General Manager of the St. Johns County Cultural Events Division.

“I see these workshops as a perfect extension of this philosophy and I am very excited that the staff has come together to create something truly unique and special to offer the immediate community in St. Augustine beyond the standard concerts, musical events and festivals that we work on each year.”

Course fees will range from $20 to $50 per class and will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the newly renovated Catering Room at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre.

Classes will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 8. All classes must be purchased and registered for at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre box office. Advance purchase is strongly encouraged as class size is limited. Box office hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Each person attending a class during the series will be invited, with a guest, to attend the “Lost Skills Soiree” on Friday, Oct. 3 to share their experiences over local and hand-crafted food, beverages, live music and more.

The St. Augustine Amphitheatre is owned and operated by the St. Johns County Cultural Events Division, under the leadership of General Manager Ryan Murphy. Go to www.staugamphitheatre.com for more information.
