What you'll do

You'll be given the warmest welcome as you step into our awesome upcycled world of furniture, textiles and art that is Studio 6:17. Beeswax food wraps are a natural eco-friendly alternative to plastic wrap/cling film and tin foil for wrapping food, bread, cheese, sandwiches and covering bowls and jars. Perfect for school lunch boxes or keeping snacks fresh on the go. They last around 12 months and are naturally anti-bacterial, can be reused, refreshed and are compostable. Your cotton wraps will be made using preloved textiles and organic ingredients: beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin. You'll be guided step-by-step, through selecting your fabrics, applying the wax mixture, setting, finishing and wrap maintenance. You'll make 3 beeswax wraps of different sizes to take home with you and by the end of the workshop you’ll be making wraps like a pro! If you’re looking for ways to become more zero waste, reduce chemical-laden plastic food packaging or looking to reduce your carbon footprint, then this is the experience for you. It’s learning in a social, fun and relaxing way with like-minded people. They make great eco gifts too! We are happy to arrange other times to suit your schedule.

Rose

We are dedicated to protecting the environment and working towards a more sustainable future. That means helping you to become an eco warrior too. We all need to take action and making small changes like cutting down on our single-use plastic is a great place to start. After a year of research and trials, many failures and sticky messes, we finally perfected our beeswax wrap mixture recipe. Luckily we've done all the hard work so you don't have to. This workshop has run regularly since August 2017 and is part of our Journey to Zero Waste series. By the end of 2019 we have shared our knowledge with over a 1000 people.
