Introduction to Candle Making: Bees Wax Candles - fully booked

26 October - 26 October 2019

A seasonal focused workshop to  introduce  a range of waxes and techniques, including traditional Bees Wax, paraffin wax and modern natural waxes such as soya wax.

Create an autumnal themed candle, a novelty shaped bees wax candle and a traditional pillar candle. Mixing scent into wax will also be included in the course and you will be able to learn the art of traditional dipping techniques to create a taper candle.

This is an excellent introduction to the therapeutic and environmentally friendly benefits of working with Bees Wax, yet the workshop will also introduce other waxes to form a complete candle making experience.

You will  be able to make at least one candle in each technique, there is potential for taking home 4 or 5 beautiful candles.
