Make Your Own Beeswax Wrap

May 12, 2019 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm
The Works, Tribe Porty
Rose Hall

What are beeswax wraps?
Beeswax wraps are a natural eco-friendly alternative to cling film and tin foil for wrapping food, covering bowls and jars. Perfect for school lunch boxes and food on the go. They keep food fresh, are naturally anti-bacterial, can be reused, refreshed and are compostable.
Your cotton wraps will be made using organic ingredients: beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin.

What will you do at the workshop?
We have done all the hard work so you dont have to. Experienced tutors will guide you step-by-step through choosing fabric, choosing ingredients, applying wax mixture, setting, finishing and maintenance. By the end of the workshop you’ll be making wraps like a pro. It’s learning in a social, fun and relaxing way with like-minded people.

Why take a beeswax wrap workshop?
If you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint, reduce waste to landfill, reduce chemical-laden plastic food packaging or looking for ways to become more zero waste then this is for you. Cling film contains phthalates that leach into your food and are known endocrine disruptors, disturbing hormone balance and are linked to asthma, breast cancer, diabetes, reduced sperm count, raised blood pressure and foetal growth disruption. It also takes 800 years to break down in landfill.

Come join our workshop and make 3 wraps to take home with you. They make great eco gifts too!
