Did you know beeswax votive candles have a centuries-long history extending back to ancient Egyptians and Greek philosophers? Most votive candles now available on the market are made of paraffin (petroleum based wax) blends, and even most available beeswax votives are pesticide-laden from commercial beekeepers.
In this workshop, make beeswax candles you can trust from treatment free and natural beekeepers outside of the commercial pollination sector. Each student will leave with 3 beeswax votive candles, a votive mold, and the knowledge to make them for years to come.
When: Friday, March 31, 2017 from 6-8pm
Where: Bee Thinking, 1744 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
