Convivial Kitchen Beeswax Workshop – Sunday 18 November, 2 to 4 pm

What’s all the buzz about?

Do you want to reduce the plastic coming into your household and going into your bin, and then landfill?

Why not cut down on wrapping and switch to beeswax wraps instead?

They are great as lids, to wrap cheese, keep avocado fresh, and wrap up your bread.

This workshop will teach you how to make them, and you will take 5 home with you.

Convivial Kitchen is hosting a beeswax wraps workshop on Sunday 18 November. The location will be South Preston (details available once registered).

Cost: $25 (waged), $20.08 (concession)

Bookings are now open: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/convivial-kitchen-beeswax-wrap-making-workshop-tickets-52439765751

Please bring some washed ironed cotton to use (a larger piece to cut into smaller pieces, or a number of different sized smaller pieces), and we will provide the rest of the ingredients.

Please note this workshop is for those over 16 years old.

This workshop is being run by Transition Darebin in conjunction with Sylvester Hive, Preston East.
