About this Workshop

Description

Let's make some fabric beeswax wraps!  These handy wraps will make your kitchen more earth friendly by helping to keep your food lasting longer and staying fresher, all while using less plastic.  These natural wraps can be used to wrap and save food, and to package food to take out with you.  When we use natural and reusable items like beeswax wraps, we live more nature-friendly and use less plastic. 

People in Latvia have always used different products from bees, such as honey, propolis, ambrosia, and of course wax.  Out of wax, people would make candles to keep their houses illuminated.  Wax was also used to make clothes water-resistant.  Wax wraps were also used to wrap and cover food.  Long before people started to use plastic for wrapping their food, they were using waxed paper and waxed textiles. Beeswax is antibacterial and allows you to keep your food fresh and clean longer.

Beeswax wraps can be used to cover food.  Fruits, such as  a piece of apple, or vegetables, such as a cucumber, do well when wrapped in beeswax.  Beeswax wraps can be used to wrap your sandwiches when going to school or work.  They can also be used to cover a plate, bowl or a jar just like you would use plastic like Saran wrap.  It is particularly good for wrapping cheese.

I started making and using beeswax wraps a few years ago.  I'm absolutely happy that I can decrease the amount of plastics or foil used and be more nature-friendly and live a ZERO waste life.

Join me in this Workshop and learn about how you can make your kitchen more earth friendly and make some cool fabric beeswax wraps!

Please note: This Workshop requires the use of an iron, younger Learners may require adult assistance.

Tanya LadushkaView Profile

Hi! I am Tanya. I live on a farm in Latvia.  What I love most about living on a farm is the fresh air I can breathe, the meadows I can walk, the goats I can raise, and the garden I tend to.  I also get to swim in my own pond, walk in my forest, and watch flowers growing.

In my art, I enjoy working with many different materials.  When I was a child, I used to like designing postcards. I used to felt (which means to make things out of felt) jewelry and shoes.  I've also learned how to make beeswax candles and textile dolls, and in the process, cotton and beeswax have become my favorite materials to work with.

Excellent Workshop

by Elizabeth on

Such an enjoyable experience for our students that they would never have the chance to do otherwise.

A Lot Easier Than You'd Think!

by Jenny on

Tanya was wonderful to learn from! She taught my kiddos about some environmentally friendly practices and what stuck out most was when she said, " Everything begins with you!" I think that really stuck for my students. They were excited to make the product itself. It was a lot easier than you think it would be and my students were excited to use an iron (some for the first time EVER!). Thanks for a great experience, Tanya and Glomado!
