Event description
Learn how to make your own beeswax wraps and how to make your own organic soap using the melt and pour method.

About this Event

Charlotte will be joining me (Hayley) to show you how to make a beeswax wrap and how to make a soap. Once you have learnt these skills, you'll easily be able to make them at home too.

I have read that 745,000 miles of clingfilm is used in the UK every year - enough to wrap around the circumference of the world over 30 times. We need to try to reduce this! Beeswax wraps are a fantastic alternative to clingfilm and can be reused over and over again and even refreshed when they start to lose their stick.

Making solid soap requires a lot less energy than making liquid soaps and bars usually last much longer than a bottle of shower gel - just remember to dry the bar out between uses! You will use the 'melt and pour' method to make an organic, SLS free custom soap. Add coffee, poppy seeds or oats for exfoliating, essential oils for calming or invigorating.....lots of options.

Achieving a zero waste lifestyle is, of course, a long journey but small steps like changing your shower gel for soap and using wax wraps instead of cling film, is a step in the right direction!

Everything you need is included in the ticket price.

The session will run as follows:

6pm: Arrival and drinks

6.15pm: Intro to zero waste living with Hayley from ‘Packaging not Included’ and Charlotte from 'Zero Waste Life'.

6.30pm - 6.45pm: Q & A with Charlotte on tips on how to live a more waste free lifestyle with practical easy swaps and suggestions- you will find that living zero waste often saves you money too!

6.45-7.45pm: DIY your own custom handmade soap!

7.45pm: Drinks break

8pm - 8.45pm: DIY your own wax wrap!
