CANDLE-MAKING & NATURAL HOLIDAY GIFTS
Settle in . . . relax and enjoy the aroma and rhythm of Candle dipping ~ with wax made by local bees. Receive the gift of warmth for yourself, and you may want to invite a family member or friend to join you in this experience
$30 class + 10 materials fee = $40
Also enjoy creating Earthen Candle Holders & decorative Match Boxes from all local and natural materials. The activities will be held in the cozy kitchen of the main house.
Although all materials are provided you might want to bring some things from nature or harvest them at the Strawbale Studio.
Dip 6 taper candles, and if you wish sculpt candle holders 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 collect some ahead of time as well, which is FUN ! (bark, stones, leaves, etc.)
If you wish, you can check out the Strawbale Studio during our snack break or after class.
You can also register for the 2 hour Learning tour from 10a -12p that day, if you would like to find out more details about the natural buildings and ask questions! $20 ~ see strawbalestudio.org/events
