Event description
Join us for a 2-hour session on bees and candle making!

About this event

In this workshop, you'll be provided with all materials and instruction to guide you in the creative process of making your own unique beeswax candles. We'll start with an introduction to bees and beeswax. From there, we'll show you some sample project ideas and demonstrate rolling tips and tricks. Finally, you'll get to pick your colours and get creative!

This workshop includes materials + an entry into the market. As per the Alberta Government, masking is mandatory for this workshop. There is limited capacity so we can ensure social distancing.

Instructor Lisa Graham will be available to answer any questions you have and to provide guidance on bringing your ideas to life. To get your creative juices flowing, she recommends checking out her beeswax sheet ideas board on Pinterest prior to arriving.

About our Instructor:

My name is Lisa Graham and I mind your beeswax. I grew up in rural southern Alberta where I worked on the family farm as well as at a local apiary. During my studies at the University of Calgary, I volunteered to make rolled beeswax candles, which I absolutely loved! Fast forwarding a few years as I worked toward an MSc in Biomedical Engineering, I decided I didn't have enough on my plate and started a business. I love sharing my knowledge of bees and beeswax with others. It’s important to respect the process from the hive to the finished product. It’s not a huge leap to bring art and science together, and I love highlighting the interdependence. Other than running YYC Beeswax, I am also active in the music scene as a private flute instructor, session musician, and recording artist. I also love spending time doing outdoor activities, gardening, and yoga.
