Join local artisan Gina Bankole for this fun and informative community workshop Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017, from 9 to 10 a.m.
A middle school history teacher for more than 20 years, Gina has a passion for folk art and living a natural, healthy, environmentally responsible lifestyle. Now, through her company Gina Bees she shares this passion with other.
To create her unique beeswax candles, Gina uses all natural beeswax sourced from a small family farm, along with cotton braid wicks, pure essential oils, and recycled containers.
In this introductory workshop, you will learn:
- The basics of candle making.
- The origins and history of the beeswax, and why it’s a better alternative to soy-based and paraffin candles.
- How to melt and mold raw beeswax.
Don’t miss this chance to take home candles that you’ve rolled yourself—ideal as a DIY gift or for your own eco-friendly décor!
