Thursday 4 July, 5.30-7.30pm, Making Beeswax Wraps with Samantha Fay for Matariki

This workshop is held in our Arts Centre workshop, which is located upstairs in the Boys’ High building at 28 Worcester Boulevard.

Make your own set of food wraps and a cheesebag for plastic-free food wrapping & carrying. We will use local and reused materials to make products that lead to a zero waste household.  We will transform these local resources - fabric saved from waste and beeswax that is produced in Ellesmere - into lovely beeswax wraps and cheese bag.

We are so fortunate to have Samantha Fay and Bridget Allen sharing their resourceful skills as part of our workshop programme. 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.
 

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

Bookings are essential and non-refundable.

 

We are grateful to the support of CNZ, which has enabled us to offer this workshop at a reduced rate.
