Winter Craft Series: Winter Beeswax Candles
December 2 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm$5
Add some light to the darkest part of the year! Each participant will dip a set of large taper beeswax candles and decorate them with pressed herbs, flowers and foliage gathered this year at Gibbs. These candles smell amazing, burn steadily and are perfect for winter celebrations and heartfelt gifts.
Making hand dipped candles has been part of our programming for many years, and it is one of the most memorable parts of our field trip program. Gibbs Farm volunteers and staff will lead you through this project and will have everything you need to get creative with natural materials.
This is a family friendly activity! Kids 12 and under should be accompanied by an adult. This special event is meant to be accessible to all, please email clare @ rchs.com or call the Gibbs Farm office if cost is a barrier.
Please enter the site through the Gibbs Farm Public Parking Lot off Cleveland Avenue and follow the signs to the Red Barn.
