Beeswax Food Wrap Workshop | £25 | 27/6

June 27 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Join us for a friendly and relaxed morning of beeswax or vegan wax food wrap making at The Barn!

Beeswax food wrap is a reusable, eco-friendly, completely natural and biodegradable alternative to cling film and other single use / plastic food storage.

The session is run by local wax wrap maker Mary of Mary Makes Zero Waste.

During the workshop, you will learn the techniques needed to create your own wax food wraps and make 3 of your own to take home with you.

Come along and meet like minded people who share a love of crafting and sustainable living in a friendly and unique renovated Barn!

General FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to attend the event? 

Minimum attendee age is 16 years as hot wax will be in use. Any child under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Contact the course tutor to check the age requirements for a workshop if not already specified. 

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the venue? 

On street parking is limited to the front and rear. However, the rear car park is often freely available evenings after 5/6pm. Otherwise May Road car park is accessible within a short walk of The Barn. This is a meter operated system. Public transport links are nearby with the main bus depot being a short walk to The Barn. The venue is easily accessible on foot from Heswall Centre and is located on the same street as The Johnny Pye pub and around the corner from the main PO/Sass hairdressers.

How accessible is the venue? 

The workshop space is located on the upper floor and accessed via approximately 10 wooden steps. Access can be gained via the front or rear. There are toilet provisions on the ground floor. We would advise wheelchair users or those with limited mobility to contact The Barn to ensure a car park space is reserved at the rear if possible although there are on street parking options for disabled Blue Badge users at the front of the building. 

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions? Feel free to get in touch via email to enquiries@thebarnwirral.co.uk or direct to the course tutor direct, if details have been provided. 

Is my registration/ticket transferrable? 

If you find that you cannot attend then you are welcome to pass your place on to a friend who may find it useful. Please let The Barn and /or the organiser know if you need to do this.

Do I have to bring my e-mail confirmation to the event? 

A register will be taken at the workshop so it isn’t necessary to print your ticket. In fact, we’d prefer you didn’t to save the paper & the environment!

What is the refund/cancellation policy? 

Refunds will be offered in the event of the class being cancelled by the tutor or The Barn. In this scenario, we will give as much notice as possible and offer alternative dates if appropriate. This class does have a minimum requirement of ticket sales for it to proceed so there is a possibility of it being cancelled. However, we will aim to contact you with as much notice as possible if this is the case.

If for any reason you find you are unable to attend, then please get in touch and a refund (less any non refundable deposit) can be offered up to 28 days before the workshop. After this period and within 28 days of an event, we are unable to offer a refund. If there is no deposit ticket option specified, the workshop value is £25 or less and so no refund can be offered in the event of a cancellation. However, subject to tutor agreement, date and circumstances, tickets can be transferred to a future workshop delivered by the same tutor. Please send an e-mail request to enquiries@thebarnwirrral.co.uk setting out the details concerning the cancellation request for onward consideration by the tutor.

What can or should I bring into the event?

It is recommended to wear comfortable/old clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty and an apron to most workshops. Light refreshments will be provided along with biscuits but you are welcome to bring your own snacks, particularly if your course runs over lunch or you have special dietary requirements. Please inform the venue should you have a nut allergy 7 days prior to attending the workshop. 

Course tutors will provide all necessary tools, equipment & materials unless specified.
