Natural Body Beauty Products

This workshop is all about natural beauty! You will learn how to make an oat body scrub, an all natural deodorant, a customised, soothing bath soak and a beeswax lip balm. You will have a set of your very own natural beauty products to take home, as well as recipe cards to replicate them.

Making your own beauty products will save you money and reduce packaging waste. A perfect workshop to learn something new, share tips on low waste living and meet like-minded people.

All tools and materials will be provided. We recommend you bring three clean glass jars to take your samples home.

Price: £20 / £15 conc.

Testimonials

Lovely workshop, fun, relaxing atmosphere, I love how easily replicable these products are.
I enjoyed making my own products and selecting the essential oils.

Creative Clothes Mending

Did you know that the fast fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world? Would you like to be able to extend the life of your clothes by learning how to repair them? Learn valuable mending and basic sewing skills that you need to fix your clothes, save money and be kind to the planet.

Come join Sunny Jar for some mindful crafting and chat about sustainable living. All levels of experience welcome and tools and materials provided. Feel free to bring clothes that need mending and we can advise on how best to fix them.

Price: £15 / £12 conc.

Wholefoods Unwrapped 

As we grow more conscious of the negative impact of processed food and plastics on our health, we are also struggling to find time to cook from scratch in our busy schedules. With the majority of our household waste from single-use food packaging, how can we look after ourselves, find time, save money and reduce our use of plastics?

Sunny Jar will share and cook our favourite low waste plant based recipes, (hummus, falafels, energy balls and flat bread), with recipe cards to take home. At the end of the session, we will sit down together and enjoy everything we have made in the workshop.

All the recipes are vegan. Please notify us if you have any allergies or dietary requirements.

Price: £20 / £15 conc.

Beeswax Wraps

Beeswax wraps are a natural eco-friendly alternative to cling film for wrapping food or covering bowls and jars. They help keep food fresh, are naturally anti-bacterial, can be reused, refreshed and are compostable. If you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint, reduce waste to landfill and reduce your use of plastics, then this workshop is for you.

Our experienced facilitator will guide you step-by-step through choosing your fabric, application of the wax, setting, and maintenance. You’ll get to take home a set of three beeswax wraps suitable for a sandwich wrap, snack bag and salad bowl cover. All materials are provided.

Price: £20 / £15 conc.

Creative Fabric Upcycling

Give fabric a second chance and learn creative ways to make them into unique new fabrics, with quilting and patchwork techniques, such as boro quilting. Bring any pieces of fabrics and trims you have. We will repurpose old clothing, household textiles, and scraps of trimmings, use the basic stitches of a sewing machine for decorative effects and gain ideas on how you can use your new fabrics as cushion panels, evening bags, book covers or even for clothing.

All levels of experience welcome and tools and materials provided.

Price: £15 / £12 conc.


About Sunny Jar Eco Hub

Sunny Jar is an idea that was conceived by two local residents, Maud and Linda. With the growing problem of plastic in our oceans and streets, we wanted to encourage others to live more thoughtfully; making a positive contribution to our local area and the environment. Our name represents our vision. ‘Sunny’ because we want to create a bright, happy and optimistic place for people to connect. ‘Jar’ symbolizes the concepts of recycling, reusing, crafting and resilience- in contrast to the throwaway lifestyle.

They need to rally as many people as they can to join their new venture that could change how we all think and live; will impact our future.
