Make your own beeswax wraps this Plastic Free July

Do you want to keep food fresh without using plastic cling wrap? Natural beeswax wraps are the answer and you can make them yourself!

In this free hands-on workshop you’ll learn two different techniques to make beeswax wraps. We’ll discuss the benefits of reducing plastic use, where to find supplies, as well as how to refresh the wraps when they get a bit old.

We will supply 100% cotton cloth, beeswax and other materials. BYO own 100% cotton cloth if you have a favourite you’d like to use.
