Bees Wax Wraps Workshop


MidCoast locals are committed to protecting their environment wherever and whenever possible, and a brand new workshop from MIDWASTE and MidCoast Council is designed to help avoid single use plastic such as cling wrap.

At the Beeswax Wraps Workshops at Cundletown and Tea Gardens, you'll learn how to make your own bees wax wraps and keep your food fresh and plastic-free! The workshop is hands-on and at the end you'll have three reusable bees wax wraps to take home to get you started.

The first Bees Wax Wraps workshop for our region was held in September in Tuncurry, with locals Debbie Richards and Jacqui Tolland saying they enjoyed "learning new skills so we can tread lightly on the planet".

Sarah Jane Huntley says "the workshop is very enjoyable and informative. I'm looking forward to using the wraps and stopping buying cling wrap".

In addition, there are plenty of tips to help you when you're making the bees wax wraps at home by yourself.

Workshop attendance costs $20 and includes three wraps you'll make yourself, to take home and get you started.

The next Bees Wax Wraps Workshop will get underway at Cundletown Community Garden on the corner of Main and Edwards Streets from 1pm - 3pm on Saturday 28 October.  The Tea Gardens Hotel on Marine Drive will host the second workshop, from 10.30am until 12.30pm on Saturday 11 November.

Places are limited and already filling fast, so book early at
