Beeswax Wrap Workshop
When: Wed, 18 November 2020, 6:15 PM – 7:00 PM
About the workshop:
Make your own beautiful and useful beeswax wraps in this practical online workshop. Great for use at home or as a gift.
Not everyone has heard about these wonders yet… if you haven’t, let us fill you in!
In an effort to reduce household plastic waste, beeswax wraps were invented to conveniently wrap your sandwiches, snacks and veggies or to cover your bowls in place of cling wrap.
Clever, right? Not only are they a step in the right direction for reducing our impact on the environment, they’re also quite easy to make at home.
Before the session you will need to pick up a kit, to make your two wraps at home as you follow along with the lesson online.
You’ll need to use your oven (not a microwave though), a baking tray and some baking paper.
Your kit will include the wax, some fabric and a small brush for pushing the wax across the fabric.
Once you know how, you’ll be making plenty to stock up your kitchen drawer!
