Join us for the following curated workshops:
Handmade Beeswax Wrap
By Wah So Simple
7:00 - 8:00 PM
Consider using this earth-friendly wrap to replace single-use cling wraps for non raw meat food items. Use the warmth of your hands to wrap around a piece of food or over a bowl. When the wrap cools — within seconds — it holds its seal. Not for use with raw meat. This wrap can be reused again and again after a gentle clean so it is super earth friendly!
DIY Concrete Planter
By 3 Odd Ducks
7:30 - 8:30 PM
Learn to make your own concrete planters or stationary holders using recycled materials. You'll mix and cast our own concrete pieces. Get creative and make something awesome as a gift for a loved one or maybe even just for yourself.

By The Soul Shine Chef
8:00 - 9:00pm
