Gorse Forage at Howth Summit

All about Gorse – we meet at Howth summit and we practice foraging for Gorse, how to create flower remedy, syrup, sketch, and chi-gung.

About this event


Alex Delogu – tai chi master with 9 years teaching experience

We meet at the top of Howth summit car park – we then practice picking Gorse and how to create your own flower remedy from it and the conditions needed with a tutorial in crafting a Gorse syrup from Alex Delogu.

With some sketching of the lighthouse (beginners need not worry ) I provide simple tips to begin a sketching from life practice and we finish off the event with some chi-gung mindful movement before heading to the summit inn bar for food (optional).

Bring rain gear as the event goes ahead regardless of weather
