Make a beeswax food wrap for Plastic Free July!

Celebrate Plastic Free July with us by learning how to make your very own beeswax food wrap – for free!

Beeswax wraps are a great alternative to single-use plastic cling film. Handy for wrapping sandwiches, covering leftovers and keeping veggies fresh in the fridge, these reusable food wraps are quick, easy and fun to make.

Drop in to Te Rua Makerspace (Level 2, Puaka-James Hight) on Thursday 25 July between 11am – 1pm to make your wrap. Please allow around 30 minutes to make your wrap. All materials are provided, and this workshop is completely free.
