New Workshop - DIY Beeswax Wraps
Have you been inspired to reduce the plastic in your home? Have you wanted to purchase the beeswax wraps in the store, but found that they are a little too pricey? Do you just want to choose different fabrics that suit your unique personality? Why not learn to make the wraps yourself, for a fraction of the store price!
We are so excited to bring Sam Harvey's DIY Beeswax Wraps workshop to The Makehouse!
This 2-hour class will teach you everything you need to know from beginning to end. Learn how to prepare your fabric, a ‘recipe’ for the ratio of beeswax/resin/jojoba oil, where to source supplies as well a tried and true method for making the wraps, with little to no mess. These wraps make ideal gifts, and YOU choose the fabrics you love. As a bonus you will be taught how to make beeswax sandwich bags that are not available in stores.
The $65 workshop fee covers fabric for two 12” wraps and enough wax/resin/oil to complete another 3-5 wraps. Bring your own additional fabrics, in the sizes you want – ideally pre-pinked, however pinking shears will be provided in class too.
We have an amazing selection of cottons in stock and all workshop supplies will be discounted by 15%!
