This class is being held at the awesome Michigan Folk School at a farm outside Ann Arbor!
March 9, 10a-4p, 2024  and November 9, 10a-4p 2024

Together we will explore the wonderful medium of raw beeswax as we learn to create custom dipped taper candles in this workshop. Hand-dipping tapered candles is an ancient craft that remains unaltered to this day. The rhythmic process of dipping cotton wick into hot wax – slowly building layer upon layer – connects one with both past and current moment. The result are beautiful beeswax candles for home or gifting.

You will dip 6 taper candles, and if you wish sculpt candle holders from an EARTHEN COB MIX, and decorate match boxes to take home. There will be a variety of natural materials from the land that you can use to decorate your projects. You can also bring some natural items to class and make something completely unique.
