Learn to make reusable beeswax wraps to avoid wrapping food in plastic. And learn to wrap holiday gifts #ZeroWaste style — without plastic tape! 

Reusable wraps made with beeswax and other natural ingredients help reduce the use of items such as cling film, ziplock bags and aluminium foil that aren't recyclable or easily reusable. 

Single-use plastic is detrimental to our environment and our health. Let's start the New Year with less plastic in our lives and help our friends and family do the same. 

In this workshop, we will:

  • make our very own beeswax wraps to use yourself or give out as Christmas gifts

  • learn various ways to package items beautifully in a sustainable way 

  • have an opportunity to ask Céline about various ways to reduce your plastic footprint on a daily basis 

The following supplies are included:

  • ingredients, supplies and tools for your beeswax wraps 

  • colorful fabric for your beeswax wrap 

  • cool wooden button and sewing supplies to make a sandwich wrap

  • paper, natural adhesive, twine and fabric to wrap your wraps (for holiday gift giving!)

You can bring:

  • If you have festive cotton fabric that you would like to use for this workshop, please bring it along! 

You will go home with:

  • 8 reusable beeswax wraps that you can keep for yourself or gift in packs of two. **RETAIL VALUE OF $80 ** 

  • beautifully wrapped beeswax wraps ready to gift

  • inspiration to embark on your own Zero Waste Voyage

  • Instructions to replicate beeswax wraps at home

  • Furoshiki (cloth based folding) wrapping cheat sheet
