WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
The Indytute love a beeswax food wrap. They look fabulous, they work, are sustainable, waterproof and naturally antibacterial. They also make fantastic gifts once you get the knack!
If you want to build up a stock of wraps the best way is to make them yourself. In this stay at home experience you will learn how to design your own patterns, make a lino-cut to create a repeat before printing onto cotton fabric using water-based ink pads. Then the bees get to work, providing the wax that forms the sealed layer. Wraps can be hand washed, line dried and re-ironed, so they provide months worth of use.
TELL ME MORE
Of course, the great thing about this stay at home experience is that once you know the method, you can wrap away, making the size of square that suits you best, and design your own signature patterns. They certainly cheer up a fridge, and once you get into the zone, no cheese or sandwich will be safe. Great for bread and covering jars and dishes. Your hands give off just enough heat to make the wax slightly softer so the fabric sticks, providing the perfect seal.
