THE CLEAN KILO: ZERO WASTE WORKSHOPS
DIY BEESWAX WRAP - £20 PLUS 10% off your in-store shopping!
16.08.21 6.00pm to 7.15pm
Why use beeswax wraps over cling film?
Well it’s a no brainer really...more than 1.2 billion metres, equating to 745,000 miles, of cling film is used by households across Britain every year – that’s enough to go around the circumference of the world over 30 times! Imagine the amount that this is adding to plastic pollution; not to mention the concerns of plastic on human health, with chemicals from plastic leaching into our food! Beeswax is naturally antibacterial, we add jojoba oil and pine resin to give it its extra stickiness! Simply mould over items you want to wrap - just like cling film!
We will be demonstrating how to make the winning recipe and you will be cutting and applying it on your selected piece of 100% cotton fabric (there will be various designs to choose from). Achieving a zero waste lifestyle is, of course, a long journey but small steps, like using wax wraps instead of cling film, is a step in the right direction - and it's fun to make too!
You will be provided with all the equipment and materials - in addition we will offer a complimentary iced raspberry lemonade tea for you to enjoy during your session! Although we can provide fabric but we recommend you bring your own old 100% cotton textiles to upcycle and transform into something useful!
You will be able to take home: one large beeswax wrap or a medium and a small.
The workshop is suitable for ages 12 and above, however children under 16 years old will require accompaniment by a parent/guardian ticker holder.
We have not perfected a recipe for a vegan alternative wrap, we will unfortunately not be able to offer this option for this workshop. Please note our beeswax ingots are locally sourced from beekeeper Tim at Bee9 and is composed of a mixture of Worcestershire and Custard Factory rooftop wax.
If you would like to shop with us during your visit - we will be open for half an hour before your session for you to take advantage of your in-store 10% off discount.
