    DIY Beeswax Wraps

    As part of Gold Coast Green Week Activities Join Reef Check Australia to learn how easy it is to make Beeswax Wraps at home.

    This will be an interactive event and you will need the following materials:
    Oven or Iron: Ovens work quicker (set to 100C), but irons do work.
    Baking Paper: If you are using an iron you will need to put baking paper top and bottom.
    Food grade Beeswax - Pellets or a block but you will need to grate the block before hand (its takes a while). We recommend natural, unbleached Australian beeswax. You should be able to find a local supplier via a google search or trip to your local farmers market. 
    Grater: If you bought block wax, preferably an old one as it will not really be useable again for food.
    100% Cotton fabric. We like to use Drill as it is slightly thicker but any cotton fabric is fine. Just make sure you wash and dry it beforehand.
    Scissors or Pinking shears: Pinking shears give a pretty edge but scissors work just fine.
    Pastry brush or paintbrush: This is to spread the wax evenly on your fabric but it will not be useable for anything else afterwards, so we suggest you don't use your kitchen best.
    Pen and ruler: To mark out the fabric.
    Baking tin: If using the oven you need an old baking tin that you can fit the fabric in, if the fabric pieces are large you can fold them over in the tin. This tin will also not be useable for anything else afterwards so don't use the best one you have.

    Virtual doors (zoom) opens at 6.25pm for a 6:30 pm start.
