Simple Living : Beeswax Wrap Workshop

Beeswax Wrap Workshop Singapore

As a textile artist, I always look for ways to use up all my scraps whether it be the fabric or the threads.  I recently met up with nature lover and good friend, Olivia Choong, and discovered she had an amazing garden and kept bees too. We both share a passion for simple living and minimising our footprint in the home, and we realised that making your own beeswax wraps is a great way to taking the zero waste journey to the next level.

So, I'm happy to announce our little collaboration, Simple Living : Beeswax Wrap Workshop.  There will be no sewing, but I will be sharing what fabrics you can use and how you can prepare your fabric for beeswaxing!

Simple Living: Beeswax Wrap Workshop, 4 Nov, 430pm - 6pm

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.
