Using fabric and beeswax, learn a foolproof process for food preservation involving zero plastic. Get the low down on choosing fabrics, the best and most ethical beeswax suppliers and a 'how to' on making and maintaining your own wraps.

You'll leave with your awesome new beeswax wraps, plus feeling inspired to take charge and live a more environmentally friendly life.

Kirsty developed a passion for creating her  own skincare after doing a lot of sustainability courses after she fell pregnant with her son. She loves making everything from scratch and eventually family and friends encouraged her to develop her hobby into a business. She’s committed to reducing her footprints and sharing what she knows with others to empower them to make more ethical and sustainable choices when it comes to the things we put on our skin. All of this… plus the products she makes are delectable!

Work-Shop is a creative concept that will broaden your horizons and help you unleash your inner awesome. We provide affordable short courses in life skills and alternative art. We’ve teamed up with Australia’s brightest creative minds to share their knowledge and help teach you a new skill. From 3D printing and stencil art through to music and gardening – life skills and personal development through to cooking doughnuts and mushroom foraging, we offer a broad range of fun and creative short courses to suit our time poor lives. We will inspire you to pick up that pen, paintbrush, hammer or sewing machine and flick the switch that will kickstart a whole new way of life.

Community values lie at the heart of our project. We collaborate with local artists and industry experts to teach classes and utilise local suppliers for any materials needed. We also provide a creative environment for emerging artists to produce and sell work, and meet like minded individuals. Work-Shop will be a space for everyone, with a rotating schedule of art shows, information nights on local issues and a whole range of events and community initiatives.

What a wonderful workshop! Learning how to reduce the need for cling film and bags by creating beautiful beeswax wraps. Kirsty is a wonderful teacher and was so enthusiastic about everything related to reducing waste. Super fun and easy to make, I'll never buy cling film again! Thanks!

Great class and lovely teacher. The only slight changes I would suggest are a shorter intro, perhaps 15 minutes rather than 30 and Producing a set of five wraps rather than three. Other than that highly recommend.

Kirsty is a lovely person, she shared with us all her knowledge about beeswax wrap. We started by introducing ourselves and talking a little bit about sustainability and the ecological footprint and then we learned how to make beeswax wrap. It was a 2 hours workshop with 9 people, but the time went by very fast.

Kristy was inspiring, and her passion was shared with us throughout the class.

She is so knowledgable in sustainability, and a great teacher.

Thanks for a wonderful and soulfully fulling evening :)
