On Sunday November 24th, behind the school, you will find one of the most popular projects at the Holiday Faire. You are invited to dip your own beeswax candle. These make a lovely handmade addition to your holiday table. If you desire a large candle, be sure to start your candle early and so you can go back throughout the day to keep adding to it. The final candle is sold by weight.
Beeswax is one of those essential, frequently utilized Waldorf items. Beeswax is a natural substance and non-toxic. The children are often given bits of colored beeswax to warm in their hands and mold into shapes. Some of their creations are often on display in the school foyer. Beeswax for molding is available in the school store for purchase. Historically, beeswax was one of the first ingredients used for candle making. Beeswax candles are naturally and lightly scented with the aroma of honey. They do not produce any soot and very little smoke. Beeswax candles have a high melting point so they burn slower and have very little drip. We hope you enjoy the opportunity to create one of these candles at the Holiday Faire.
