About this event

Esker invites you to join us in learning about the Wonders of Beeswax with Alvéole Urban Beekeeping.

Did you know that Esker has a beehive on our building's roof? And the hexagonal planters behind our building are specially-designed with honey bee-friendly flowers!

Honey bees are famous for their sweet honey, but there are more products from the hive to discover. In this hour-long artisanal workshop you will experience the wonders of beeswax hands-on. Guided by Esker's beekeeper, Denny Lee Townsend, you will learn the rich history of beeswax, and participate in the centuries-old process of creating hand-crafted beeswax candles. Make a one-of-a-kind gift for your friends and family for the holiday season!
