Wax Workshops

We run occational workshops on using beeswax. You can learn about beeswax as a product of the hive and how to produce items such as candles, soap, polish, wax wraps and cosmetics. There will 4 groups of people each taking turns in learning a number of techniques and producing wax products.

Teas and coffees will be available. Bring your own lunch. There won’t be a set lunch break – the workshops will vary slightly in length so you’ll have an opportunity to eat and to have a short break as we go.

Wax Workshop Success

We all had a fantastic time at the Wax Workshop. Even the snow did not stop the course from going ahead. We all managed to walk away with our own fantastic examples of rolled candles, dipped candles and mold candles as well as beeswax polish, hand cream and soap.

Thanks to Bill, Judy, Moira and Doreen for running this event. Everybody walked away with a fantastic array of wax based products: clearly enthused to go away and create their own.

Here are just some of the comments received about the course:
