Making Beeswax Wraps: A more sustainable alternative to plastic wrap
August 19 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Join MEEA and KACEE for a conversation and tutorial with Pam Martin of the Kansas Wetlands Center, KDWPT on making your own beeswax food wraps! Simple and affordable to make, reusable, and long-lasting, beeswax wraps are a more sustainable alternative to using single-use plastic wrap (Saran Wrap and the like).
Please see the materials list below. If you plan to make your own wraps alongside Pam’s tutorial, you’ll need to purchase and/or have on hand the following items. (It’s also OK to just watch the tutorial and try your hand and making wraps later!)
- 100% cotton fabric
- Pinking shears (or regular scissors)
- Stencils & fabric markers (if desired)
- .35 oz pine resin*
- 1.25 oz beeswax pastilles, or grated*
- 1 Tbsp jojoba oil*
- Large Popsicle stick
- Parchment paper
- Paint brush
- Double boiler or canning jar (Mason jar) and saucepan
*Pine resin can be purchased online; beeswax & jojoba oil can be found in the candle section of big box craft stores, from local beekeepers, at some grocery stores and farmers’ markets.
