I am collaborating with Jo Mcginns.madefreshchch for this cool workshop for tamariki making their own beeswax lunch wraps. In this class children will draw and colour a 12 x 12 cm square of fabric, perfectly proportioned for wrapping cookies, crackers, carrot sticks, muffins or similar. All materials are supplied. Cost is $5 per wrap.

Children younger than 6 must be accompanied by at least 1 grown up between two. Please provide age of your child when booking your preferred session time. For tickets contact Rukimini (here) or Jo Mcginns.madefreshchch to reserve your child a space and pay on arrival.
Thank you to my 7 year old helper for demonstrating how to use reusable clingwrap this morning! 🍪😇 If your creative whizz would like to make their own cookie size wrap, I’m happy to host a children’s session before wraps class this Friday. Kids session: 4.30-5.30, $5 per wrap, children colour their own wrap, and I will apply wax/resin. Taking registrations of interest as I would need a minimum of 5 to run the class.

Our Story


New Zealand has many wonderful ingredients and I love to show case them. Every ingredient has been considered, and I intentionally keep batches small, so that when you purchase a product you know you are buying something carefully and freshly prepared.

Mcginns was hatched after the birth of my son, for the first time considering the how chemicals commonly found in personal care products could effect a rapidly growing body. Soon followed research and development and production of my own range of skin care products. Over the years my range has grown to include Facial Serum, Sunbalm and now Solid Shampoo and Conditioner Bars.

I believe its important to care for the environment. I am constantly looking for was to conserve my resources, and I am proud to now offer Swappa Pot, a 100% Refillable container, delivered in compostable packaging. Message me if you would like to know more :) Jo
