      Ben's Bees Beeswax Wraps Workshop @ Prahran Market

      Ever wanted to make your own Beeswax wraps? Well, now you can in this fantastic workshop with Ben Moore, of Ben's Bees! Cling film, Gladwrap, or plastic wrap, is a thin plastic film that clings to itself and other surfaces. But this single-use product is a big issue: it is not reusable, and immediately ends up in landfill and our oceans, leaching chemicals for years and causing harm to the environment.  Beeswax wraps are the perfect substitute.   These natural cotton cloths, embedded with beeswax and resins, are pliable and washable and can mould to fit foods and vessels that require protection. By using non-toxic substances, the potential for leaching is eliminated, and the “throw-away” habit is reduced in the home environment.  So why not give making your own a go! This two-hour workshop is split into two sections: the first hour is an informative chat about bees and the important uses of bee products (honey and wax); in the second hour, Ben will teach you how to make your very own beeswax wraps! Seriously. How good is that?  They are great for your own home, and with Christmas coming up (We know! Dare we say it?), they're the perfect environmentally-friendly gift. Each participant takes home their very own Beeswax wraps plus a jar of back yard honey - fresh from Ben's bees!
