Candle & Gift-Making Class

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.
