As weturn into the magical autumn season in the Pacific Northwest, we also welcome an early sunset and longer nights. In this workshop, Renée Beaudoin will help illuminate your days by showing you how to pour and dip candles. We will be making handcrafted candles with both soy and beeswax, while learning how to use clean burning wicks, how to balance essential oils and fresh foraged botanicals, and how to incorporate color. While you wait for your candles to set we will sip on mulled cider and bubbly, and feast on a snack board. You will leave with a set of hand-dipped beeswax birthday candles, two soy-based poured candles with bergamot, pear, bay, rosemary, and mugwort; and a beeswax-based poured candle finished with sage and other foraged botanicals.
