Materials saved from the landfill:
Skills you’ll learn:
waxing fabric, sewing, cutting fabric
You don’t need to go out and buy new products to reduce waste at home — you can make them yourself from reclaimed materials! In this workshop, you’ll craft along to make a set of cloth beeswax wraps from salvaged fabric and natural materials to replace plastics in your kitchen. You’ll learn the best ratio for making your wraps nice and sticky, and lots of tips and tricks along the way. Leave the workshop with a pair of wraps sized 8″ x 8″ and 12″ x 12,” and knowledge to make many more! As we craft, we’ll also cover best practices to reduce the amount of trash coming in and out of your cabinets, counters, and fridge.
