Beeswax Wrap Workshop – 27 July 2019, 9am – 12pm

27/07/2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm AEST

Learn to make environmentally friendly beeswax wraps

Do you prefer using more natural products? Do you want to lessen your environmental impact by reducing your reliance on single use plastic wrap and plastic bags to cover and store food?  Then why not come along and learn a simple way to make beeswax wraps?  Beeswax wraps are washable, reusable over a long time, can be used in the fridge and freezer and lunch box and when they have reached the end of their usable life, they can be added to the compost.  They are inexpensive to make, can be custom made to size and they are very cute.

What you need to bring:

Fabric:

At least ½ metre, 100% cotton (NOT polycotton), lightweight and tightly woven.  When choosing your fabric, patterned or darker colours are recommended because beeswax will give a slightly yellowish finish.  The fabric does not have to be new but it does have to be 100% cotton.  You will need to wash and dry your fabric before use.

Pencil and ruler: Everyday pencil is fine or a fabric marker if you have one.

Scissors: Dressmaking scissors is fine or pinking shears are even better if you have them

What’s included:

The workshop will include all other materials and equipment needed, a take home simple instruction sheet for future reference, tips to maintain your beautiful wraps and ideas how to use them.  Tea and coffee will be provided but please bring your own water bottle,  a small snack if needed and a positive attitude.  At the end of a  fun interactive 3 hours you will have made at least 3 beeswax wraps to take home for yourself or to give as gifts.

Note: This workshop is unsuitable for children due to the use of hot liquids
