Household Uses of Beeswax Workshop

Beeswax has been used for thousands of years as a preserving and sealing agent, a thickener for various products made from oils (creams, ointments) and to waterproof fabrics.

The properties of natural beeswax lend themselves too many uses relevant in modern households. If you want to reduce the use of chemical-laden household maintenance products and plastic food packaging, learn how to make safe food wraps. They are perfect for storing/covering/wrapping fruit, veg, garden produce, nuts, sandwiches, cheese, bread, crackers and fermented foods in your lunchbox, fridge or pantry.  Reduce your household waste, get upskilled!

Who: This workshop is suitable for adults who live in the City of Ryde local government area. Participants will be engaged to learn new skills that will allow them to actively reduce consumption, waste and plastics in their households. 

Equipment: Please bring your own note pad and pen to take notes. To reduce our environmental impact, please bring your own cup to enjoy morning tea.

Clothing and Footwear: Footwear must be enclosed, non-slip sole and suitable for physical activity. NO thongs, sandals or open toed shoes.

This is a Waste Education program brought to you by the City of Ryde.
