Learn how to make hand rolled beeswax candles using the warmth of your own hands. This cozy craft doesn’t involve any melting or hot wax, making it a quick and family-friendly activity. Liz Wagner is the Creative Lead at The Crafter’s Box, and her love of the craft shines through as she shares a wide range of candle shapes, sizes, and embellishments to make with our kit.  In this workshop, Liz teaches us how to handle beeswax sheets for candle making, make our cuts, and pick the best wick size. The possibilities are seemingly endless as we learn to make tapered, fluted, pillar, beehive, and decorative floating candles. By combining different colors and playing with cut shapes, we can further customize our designs. This workshop includes: 

  • A detailed digital workshop led by Liz Wagner
  • A live Maker Chat Q&A for our community to join in on a creative conversation with the artist
  • Tools & materials to make 10 -2o beeswax candles
  • PDF download with written instructions to complement the video tutorial
