Event Description

TUESDAY, 15 JANUARY 2019, 6 – 8 PM


Join our presenters from the  ‘Giving Plastic The Flick’ group for a hands-on workshop making your own wax wraps. These workshops are a great place to meet new friends and discover just how easy it is to make re-usable wax wraps in your own home. You will learn about various methods, what materials you need and where to source products. We aim to make 4-5 wraps of varying sizes on the day.

Please bring

Pieces of fine cotton material. Some suggested sizes are: Small ( 12x 12 cm), Medium ( 23 x 23 cm), Large ( 33×33 cm). You may have some at home, or check out Op Shops as they often stock a variety of good material. It must be COTTON, not polycotton. If you are buying from your local fabric supplier, consider 100% cotton Lawn or light sheeting material. You will need to wash and dry your material prior to the workshop. Some material will be available on the day for a donation.  We will have templates to cut if you have larger pieces of material. Bring along Pinking Sheers if you have them.

Herbal teas made from our garden will be available.

Places are limited and bookings essential. These workshops are all weather events (rain or shine).

This will be a relaxed fun morning. To book, click here

This project has been proudly supported by Sunshine Coast Council’s grants program.
