Instructor: Shelly Banks
Class limit, 12 students
Go green, or greener! Learn to make beeswax wraps without making a mess, and without having to invest in lots of equipment. In this short class Shelly will take you through the steps necessary for this colourful, fun, and useful project. Use the wraps you make to cover lidless containers, casserole dishes, pie plates, cups, and much more. Help reduce our planet’s plastic overload!
Materials, including the beeswax wrap mixture and heat guns supplied in class. Using light-weight 100% cotton, you will learn to cut the fabric to the most useful sizes for covering the various containers you have at home. Shelly will show you how to make a safe tin-foiled working surface, then how to make your wraps.
These handy wraps make very nice, practical gifts for your friends and family, or keep them and use them over and over yourself.
