Beeswax food wraps are a great, sustainable alternative to plastic food coverings.
On this workshop run by creative Norlyne Rosewarne, who hand makes and sells Bwrapz Food Wraps, you will learn how to make your own beeswax wraps.
You will begin by choosing and cutting 6 cotton fabric designer squares. You will then go through the steps needed to create and lay the cotton out on the base and baking paper before starting the technique of brushing the beeswax mix onto the individual cotton pieces. Norlyne will demonstrate the ironing technique showing you how to evenly seal the cotton and alter any mistakes, before hanging the wraps to dry.
Helpful hints and tips on using and sealing different food items, folding techniques, and care will be shared along with how to add string and a button as a final touch. The products you make and take home will be reusable and biodegradable.
This taster workshop is perfect for all to learn a new skill they can continue at home, and to boost your eco-credentials by using less cling film and plastic.
The price includes all materials and refreshments, and ‘Make your Own’ Bwrapz Food Wraps gift packs and individual Bwrapz mix making blocks will also be available for sale.

The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a supportive and welcoming home environment in the Edinburgh New Town. Spaces are limited to allow our artists and designer-makers to offer hands-on help and support. All equipment is provided and all the materials you will need (unless stated otherwise). Just turn up, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in creating something unique.
Refreshment breaks are an important part of The Arienas Collective experiences. They are a time to socialise, make new friends and chat to the artists and designer-makers. We are fortunate to have a fantastic range of independent shops and producers nearby and are proud to feature locally sourced food and drinks.
The price includes welcome refreshments, and on our full day workshops we include a buffet style lunch. And of course you take home all the unique products you create.
All our experiences are also available to book as a private group, and most can be brought to you too. Please email us for more information.
