This plastic-free event is designed to assist you in your journey towards an ecofriendly lifestyle.

Where: Geelong, Geelong-Bellarine


The plan

Reduce plastic in your life and home by making your own reusable and low-impact versions of supermarket items that have become so readily disposable.

This workshop is made up of three sessions that will help you to discover, explore and make ecofriendly items, with practical and usable products to use in your daily life. You will begin with homemade deodorant – discussing ingredient choices, and active ingredients, and then making your own. This will then go into the fridge to set, and the class continues as you make reusable make-up remover pads using hand-sewing techniques.

There will be a break to graze on a vegan platter, and then the last portion of the workshop sees you making your own beeswax wraps using wax, resin and oil.

The sessions are detailed and thorough – you will leave with the knowledge and confidence to continue making your own ecofriendly supplies at home.

The fruits of your labour

By the end of the class you will have completed several items to take home, including approximately 90g deodorant, 2–3 make-up removal pads and 3–4 beeswax wraps (depending on size). You'll also have enjoyed a delicious vegan grazing plate!

The kit required

All equipment, materials and recipes are provided. You may wish to bring an apron as the wax can be a bit messy; you are also welcome to bring a pen and paper to take notes.
