DIY beeswax wraps
Visual Dialogues XIII, “Devoured”, artist Annie Hsiao-Wen Wang will be running a workshop on DIY beeswax wraps as part of the initiative to reduce plastic use.
Beeswax wraps are a natural alternative to plastic wrap for food storage. Made from 100% cotton , beeswax and coconut oil, these wraps are reusable for up to 1 year with proper care. Using these reusable bees wax wraps saves space in your fridge and reduces your need to use disposable plastic bags and containers. So say goodbye to yucky plastics in contact with your food! Beeswax are also edible so you can feel safe wrapping your food in it.
If you need to dispose of them, no problem because they are 100% biodegradable and can be composted or used as kindling for your fireplace.
Beeswax wraps are naturally anti-bacterial and can be easily cleaned for continued use.
These wraps normally cost around $700 + postage but after this class you will know how to make them at a fraction of the cost.
In this 2 hour class we will be making 3 different sizes;
33 x 33cm – Large, can be used to cover large bowls, sandwiches or watermelons for example
26cm round – Round, used to cover bowls or plates
18 x 20cm – Small, use for half lemons, cucumbers or onions.
There is a limit of 12 people for this workshop. Please RSVP to reserve your place, and also so we can know how much materials to buy.
Cost of workshop: $600
Help us reduce plastic waste by making naturally organic products and make sure your food is fresh and safe.
FAMILIES WELCOME: Recommended minimum age, 10 yo with some parental assistance.

Red Room presents the tenth of our Sunday Afternoon Open Studio series!!
Writers, poets, photographers, painters, sculptors, comedians, filmmakers, juggler, musicians, songwriters, dancers, designers. All artists and creatives welcome! Develop and play with ideas, or utilize this opportunity for second opinions on your work in progresses.
SPECIAL WORKSHOP BY Annie Hsiao-Wen Wang 王筱雯
ATTENTION: crocheters, knitters, sewers, weavers, and all DIY/crafting extraordinaire!
ALL AGES WELCOME: Younger children can do braiding and with a parent’s assistance, can be easily involved in the process.
Red Room currently has a supply of fabrics and as an upcycling initiative One Brown Planet will be running a series of DIY sessions to make rag rugs from them to donate to the homeless people of Taipei. These sessions will be run concurrently with the Open Studio at the Red Room.
Share your skills with everyone in these sessions. We are open to all suggestions of the best method of making a Rag Rug, and also other ideas of upcycling scrap materials.
Even if you don’t know how to sew/crochet/weave/braid, come join us anyway and learn from your new friends! Then take home these valuable skills to upcycle your old sheets and t-shirt to make them into something else you can use in your own home.
BYO: crochet hooks, knitting needles, sewing needles, scissors, whatever your choice of tools!
If you won’t be working on something and just want to hangout, please feel free! But we would like to remind you to respect those practicing/working on their art form.
This is a free event – for you, by you. Which means that the bar and cash register will be closed – so please bring some beverages and snacks to share. Sharing is caring!
Please inbox us to ask if you are uncertain about how appropriate the art form/materials you’d be bringing would be suitable for the shared space. Of course, power tools are discouraged (safety + noise), and fire is not allowed on the premises (sorry, metal-workers!).
Hope to see you there!
Love, Red Room
