Summer Floral Candle Making Workshop for Teens
August 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Celebrate the scents of summer with your own unique candle! Gariné of Kulina Folk Art will help teens learn about different kinds of candles, which waxes are best suited for each type of candle, wick and heat resistant container sizes, the difference between essential oils and fragrance oils, and receive complete instructions on how to burn a candle. Each participant will make one container-candle using soy wax, and can choose from a variety of seasonally inspired fragrance oils. Once the wax has cooled undisturbed for approximately 24 hours, teens can take their candle home and may burn it after a 2-week curing period.
Per the request of the instructor, participants are kindly asked to wear a face mask during the workshop.
