Make a free beeswax wrap!

Feel like getting hands on for #PlasticFreeJuly? Come and make a free DIY beeswax wrap with UC Sustainability & Te Rua Makerspace! 🍯
Drop into our fun & free workshop, and be guided through the process of making a FREE reusable food wrap to replace single use cling film in your life.
What: DIY Beeswax Wrap Workshop
When: Thursday 29 July, drop in from 12pm – 2pm
Where: Te Rua Makerspace (Level 2, Central Library)
Cost: Free!
Each wrap takes roughly 15 minutes to make from start to finish, and is made with repurposed cotton and organic beeswax.
We will provide everything you need for the workshop. You are more than welcome to BYO fabric if you have something at home in mind – however please make sure this is 100% cotton.
See the Facebook event here for more information, and check out the video from last year’s event to get excited!


What is Te Rua Makerspace?
Te Rua Makerspace is a physical space in UC’s Central Library where learning is made practical by applying a range of disciplines to explore ideas, solve problems and build things through making. Make the most of the Makerspace and attend one of their many free workshops during term time, or drop in to use their facilities any time. Find Te Rua Makerspace on Level 2 of the Central Library. Walk in, turn left, come on in!
