I’m excited to be teaming up with textile artist, Agatha Lee, to run a beeswax wrap workshop in Singapore. More details below!
Simple Living: Beeswax Wrap Workshop
Looking for a safe, natural and reusable alternative to plastic wrap and aluminium foil? Learn how to make your own zero-waste beeswax food storage wraps for use at home – perfect for encasing freshly cut fruit and vegetables, and sealing a variety of cooked food, and sauces in containers.
During this 1.5 hour workshop, textile artist, Agatha “Agy” Lee, and self sufficiency advocate, Olivia Choong, will guide you step by step in preparing a delicately scented beeswax mixture for application on any natural fabric, and evenly setting the mixture to create a beautiful beeswax wrap, ready for you to take home for immediate use!
Join us for this fun, hands-on workshop! Once you learn how simple it is to make your own beeswax wraps, you will no longer wish to buy (and throw) plastic wrap and aluminium foil. With the festive season approaching, this also makes a wonderful gift for friends and family.
Price includes all materials.
