4th July, 11am – 1pm (please check materials you need before signing up.
Many people have been affected in different ways by the Covid lockdown. Especially in these times, we want to offer accessible first-grade environmental education to our community, whilst still giving local craftspeople and educators paid employment. For this reason, we’re operating a pay as you feel system with a minimum price that covers only the materials, and a suggested donation that varies by workshop. Find more below.
We’ve adapted one of our communities’ favourites to run online!
Experienced tutors will guide you step-by-step through mixing ingredients, application, setting, finishing and maintenance. By the end of the workshop you’ll be making wraps like a pro. It’s learning in a fun and relaxing way with like-minded people.
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. Ideal for cheese, sandwiches, lunch boxes and snacks on the go. They keep food fresh, are naturally anti-bacterial, can be reused, refreshed and are compostable. Our wraps are made using organic ingredients: beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin.
