Votive Candle Making

January 17 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The trade of chandlery (candle making) was historically vitally important. Light was obviously a necessity, and that light came from wax or tallow (animal fat) candles. Businesses, homes, parishes, etc. all relied on chandlers, making it a rather lucrative profession for the medieval craftsman.Today candles aren’t a practical necessity but they can add a hygee or romantic ambiance.

While there a few different types of candles you can make, this class focuses on container candles.
