Our workshop leader this month is Naomi Green, leader of The Green Team.  A self-taught eco-crafter and entrepreneur, Naomi creates vegan-friendly, reusable gifts from Green headquarters (her home) in Kent. 

Naomi handmakes all her items; always with the planet's best interest at heart.  She uses cotton and vegan-friendly candelilla wax for my wax wraps which makes them durable and natural so they can be used again and again and when their lifespan has exceeded their use, they can be composted and returned to nature.

In this workshop, Naomi will be showing you how to create your own vegan-friendly wax wraps, a useful alternative to single-use clingfilm and sandwich bags. With the use of a stove, an oven, a few other household items and of course your knack box you'll be able to create your own wax wraps which are the perfect kitchen accessory for your sustainable lunchtimes! 

 

The following will be in your box:

  • Candelilla wax

  • Soy wax

  • Pine resin

  • Jojoba oil

  • Paintbrush

  • Cotton fabric wraps

  • Mixing stick

You'll also need the following:

  • Access to oven and hob

  • Glass or metal bowl/jug (for melting the wax)

  • Saucepan large enough to hold the bowl for the melting process (the bowl should sit comfortably inside the saucepan)

  • Kitchen tongs

  • Oven gloves or tea towel

  • Baking tray

  • Optional - Iron to iron the creases out of the cotton
