Three wonderful Candle Classes were held this December filling the air with the scent of bees wax. We made our own wicks, dipped them into local bees wax ~ making lovely “tapers”. Folks also made earthen candle holders shaped from a modeling mix made entirely of subsoil harvested on this land. The candle holders and match boxes were creatively decorated with bits of nature foraged from outdoors ~ birch bark, rose hips, seed pods….each person inventing their own unique project.
We ranged in age from 4 years to 69 years (was I the oldest !?) and our happiness was very apparent. What a natural thing to do. Both practical and artistic, and made from local materials. What a joy !
You could schedule a candle class for your group if you wish.
