Not only do we hope to help the environment through our shopping habits but we hope to connect people to nature, the outdoors and to each other. If you are an individual looking to meet new people or a group who are useless at organising yourselves we will be doing a series of hikes, beach cleans, workshops and social events.

If you would like to know when these are happening please sign up to our newsletter below.

Wreath Making Workshop

Friday, 3rd December 2021, 18.30 - 21.30

Join The Habit Store and Sarah Noonan (Willow and Wild Blooms) for a dried flower wreath workshop. Sarah embraces the naturalistic style of wreath making using flowers and foliage we can all grow in our gardens or forage from the fields. Bring the outside inside and grace your home with the beauty of the Irish countryside this festive season and all year round.

Enjoy a creative and relaxing evening together as you learn how to create your own unique dried flower wreath using a selection of materials grown by Sarah in her garden in Foxford, County Mayo. As your wreath is made from dried flowers it will last for many years to come.

You will receive a glass of mulled wine (or two) on arrival, tea and coffee and some tasty snacks throughout the evening. All tools and materials are provided.
