About the Tutor:

'Penny has been keeping bees for 7 years with three apiary sites around the Shire. She is the President of the Illawarra Beekeepers and helps to run training courses at the club. With a keen interest in using all hive products to their best advantage, Eco wax wraps were a great way to use excess beeswax. After much trial and error, Penny has developed a fantastic recipe and method for making the wax wraps.'
