Upcycle some of your favourite souvenir tea towels into environmentally-friendly beeswax wraps. In this workshop you will turn a tea towel into a set of wraps which you can use to store food without the use of plastic!
As part of the current exhibition Greetings from…the power of souvenirs, the Migration Museum is offering a series of workshops to upcycle souvenirs into things you will want to use. Souvenirs hold many memories and these workshops offer the opportunity to make them into something new to treasure!
For this workshop, bring along an un-used cotton tea towel and make it into a set of wraps. You will even be able to choose the size of the wraps you want to make. Souvenir tea towels often have striking designs which are perfect for making eye-catching plastic-free food storage. As well as covering cheese and other food for keeping in the fridge, you can use them to carry snacks and sandwiches on the go, keep bread on the counter or in the freezer, and wrap up greens for the crisper. If you don’t have any suitable tea towels, you are welcome to purchase retro souvenir tea towels on the day for $5. Through this workshop, you will gain the skills and the confidence to make more wraps at home.
The workshop includes a curator’s tour of the Greetings from…the power of souvenirs exhibition so you can get inspired by souvenirs. Afternoon tea will also be served as part of this workshop.
This event is part of the History Festival 2019, organised by the History Trust of South Australia.
