Hand Dipped Beeswax Candles Workshop
This is a workshop in which we will each make a pair of hand dipped bees wax candles. We will discuss the critical width of wick to the width of wax. Also, the fact that modern candles often have a wick with a metal center to keep them stiff in either dipping or pouring. We will discuss methods of decorating candles, as well as storing care of your hand dipped candles.

I grew up learning that “Time is Money” and I had way more time than money. I would go and volunteer places to learn things that I wanted to know, so I seldom paid for the things I wanted to learn. I have Degrees in both Psychology and Sociology In the last ten years I have been a “Pro” at both Miscon and Radcon. As well as a merchant and worker and OCF. I have traveled to countries as far away as the Ukraine and Poland. My Favorite two sayings are “Always make the Deal” and “Imagination is more important than Knowledge” (That last one is Einstein.) I firmly believe that “Fear” is the only thing that stops us from doing things and I always remind myself that I am not afraid of looking foolish. Most importantly “Think out of the Box!”
