Making Beeswax Wraps with Samantha Fay on Tues 13th or Thurs 15th November 2018

Make your own set of food wraps for plastic-free food wrapping & carrying.

Using local and reused materials to make products that lead to a zero waste household. The fabric that we use for our wraps has been saved from waste from Christchurch businesses. The beeswax we use is produced locally in Ellesmere.

We are so fortunate to have Samantha Fay and Bridget Allen sharing their resourceful skills at the Necessary Traditions festival. Samantha and Bridget run New Brighton Stitch-O-Mat which offers the community a resource for up-skilling sewing skills and a hands-on way to recycle fabric and develop creativity. Machines are available for people to use for their own sewing project, or to sew for a community project such as the Veggie Co-op and the Childrens' Ward at Christchurch Hospital. Stitch-O-Mat also offers a Learn-to-Sew class and Sustainability Workshops, plus more workshops for children and seasonal events.
Samantha and Bridget will be teaching beeswax wrap workshops at the Gym at the Arts Centre Ōtautahi Christchurch as part of the festival: Join Bridget on Tuesday 13 November 11.30am - 1.30pm, and join Samantha Thursday 15 November 11.30am - 1.30pm

Suitable for all 4 years and older with adult supervision, children over 10 can be unsupervised.

Huge thanks to the Arts Centre for supporting the festival and this workshop!
