Natural Hand Dipped Bees Wax Candles
Instructor: Jessica Kaufman
Monday, June 19
9:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Beginner Level. No experience required.
Explore the delightful medium of natural, recycled beeswax as we learn to create custom-dipped tapered candles. Hand-dipping tapered candles is an ancient practice that remains mostly unaltered. The process of hand dipping and slowly building layer upon layer of beeswax results in a pair of beautiful candles for the home. Students will make at least two pairs of candles.
There will be a 30-minute lunch break. Bring a lunch or explore local dining options.
All materials are included in the Materials Kit Fee of $15 PAYABLE TO THE INSTRUCTOR at the time of the workshop.
