Regardless of new technology, everyone loves the light, warmth, and beauty of handmade candles. This course will introduce students to the ancient traditions of "chandlery". Students will learn about different waxes, wicks, scents, colors, and molds - and will make a variety of candles using old and new materials. Students should bring candle stubs, used up candles, and an assortment of favorite containers such as teacups, mason jars, sea-shells, and vintage glassware. You can expect to bring home an assortment of hand-made gifts in time for the holidays.
NOTE: Students will be working with hot wax, dyes and fragrances. Wear casual work clothes.
