HAND-DIPPED BEESWAX TAPER CANDLES
This workshop is led by Liz Wagner, Creative Director of The Crafter's Box. Our first in-house workshop, we're so looking forward to walking through and introducing this beautiful process. Liz leads the way with a curated kit that includes natural honey yellow beeswax to make over 75 party-sized taper candles. For those who want to dive deeper, we're offering an enhanced kit for exploring both party sized candles and larger taper production with an additional 3 lbs of natural beeswax and an extra large wax melting pot. The opportunity to keep making is just too wonderful.
We are so excited to have you join us for this project. Be sure to listen in on our podcast episode where we learn more about the history of candle making and the differences in materials today on the market - there are so many wonderful reasons beeswax is so special.
We would love for you to share your final product by tagging us in your photos. Don’t forget to use #thecraftersbox to show everyone - and see what others - are up to. Happy making!
