Beeswax candle-making workshops

Come and join us in our beekeeping centre in Confolens (16500) and learn how to make your very own beeswax candles and Christmas decorations!
We're running a handful of sessions from 18th November to 16th December running from 1 pm - 3:30/4 pm with refreshments provided.
There will be a brief chat around how our bees make the wax and how we harvest it whilst we enjoy some tea and cake and then every guest will learn how to make at least 2 rolled candles, 5 moulded candles, 2 tea lights and a set of traditional Christmas tree decorations - all for you to take home and keep or share as unique gifts.
The sessions cost €40 per person which includes all the beeswax (the rarest wax of them all), moulds, equipment and tuition. Check out our web page for more details or call us on 05 45 71 22 90 to book your place.
