Candle Making with Ultan Cowley


Learn to make your own candles using beeswax from hives sited on the nearby Hook Peninsula. In this unhurried and story-filled workshop, discover the subtle qualities and remarkable health benefits of pure beeswax, and learn the techniques needed to make candles of your own. You will fill four distinctively shaped candle moulds, create your own personalised sandcast candle, and experience traditional dinner candle dipping as practiced by the Cistercian monks at nearby Tintern Abbey. You will also, of course, take your very own moulded candles home with you!

€30 per participant (3-hour workshop)

This 3-hour workshop will be running on the following days: Monday 3rd June/ Sunday 4th August/ Saturday 21st September 2019
