During this two-hour workshop, we will work with 100% pure beeswax, a natural, renewable resource. Beeswax candles emit a bright, healthful light within the same spectrum as the sun, generating negative ions that clean the air and invigorate the body. Beeswax burns longer, drips less, and smells wonderful, naturally.
Although we have not finalized the details, we intend to make most of our beeswax candles using 100% pure natural beeswax in its natural yellow colour and scent, as well as one or two candles using de-aromatized white beeswax, allowing us to use some colour and scent.
Participants in this workshop will make: - four hand-dipped beeswax tapers (natural beeswax colour) - several small molded candles (pinecone, beehive, votive) - two travel tin container candles - two jam jar candles with added colour and scent, if desired.
Candle-making is safe and fun! Hundreds of people have enjoyed our soy candle workshops and we are sure hundreds more will love to learn about beeswax!
Maximum 8 participants.
