Bees use wax to make their honeycomb, store honey, and raise their young. In medieval times, as a product of the hive, beeswax was more important than honey. It has numerous health benefits and uses. In this workshop, we’ll show you how to process raw beeswax and use it to produce beautiful handmade candles, balms, and beeswax wraps.
16 - 17 November
