Bees Wax Wraps support a plastic free environment. They are a great substitute for cling wrap, perfect for keeping food fresh in your fridge, lunch boxes and picnic baskets. In this workshop you will make at least four sizes of wraps for storing/covering/wrapping fruit, veg, herbs, nuts, sandwiches, bread, crackers and fermented foods for your lunchbox, fridge or pantry.

Materials will be provided, but please feel free to bring your own cotton material to cut into shape for a beeswax wrap.

A perfect present for a loved one! A lovely sustainable gift for mother's day.
