Candle making classes

13 April 2019: upcoming candle making class

Candles are one of the oldest crafts out there and have been going ever since the days of the Romans. Beeswax and tallow were the main ingredients used for candle making until the 1850's. This is when it was discovered that paraffin wax could be obtained from petrol, coal or wood.

Candles were traditionally made by repeatedly dipping the wick in melted tallow.
