A Green Lent: Workshops

Beeswax Wraps Workshop

Saturday, February 22, 10:00 12:00 p.m. in Room 6

Cost: Free

Are you working towards zero waste in your home? Reusable and sweetly-scented beeswax cloths can replace plastic wrap and Ziploc bags for leftovers and lunches. We will take you through every step of the process, and you'll leave with a useful new skill and one handmade beeswax wrap. 

Beeswax wraps are perfect for sealing bowls, wrapping cut fruit, vegetables, sandwiches, cheese and more. 

Inspired by heritage food storage methods, beeswax wraps can last for 6-12 months or longer if properly cared for. Once you learn how, you may be inspired to make more for yourself or as gifts. 

All materials will be provided, but if you have a 100% cotton fabric with a nice design, please feel free to bring it. Fabric size should be no larger than 12 x 12 inches with a tight weave.  

Note: This is an in-house workshop (for the SUC congregation). Southminster will also be offering a beeswax wrap workshop in March, which will be open to the community. See information below:
