Honeybees chew, shape, and mold tiny scales of wax into perfectly-sized interlocking hexagons, using only their bodies to measure. The super power of producing these wax scales only occurs for about a week of each bee’s life, and it could be said that without them, honeybee communities could not exist. This is where the bee’s wax story begins, and on February 24th, the story will continue with you dipping and taking home your own set of beeswax taper candles. Join us as we dive deep into the wax story – learning how it’s made, where it comes from and how bees use it in their hive. All while engaging in the process of collectively dipping candles from local beeswax. We’ll have our observation hive on hand so you can see bees at work and dried flowers to decorate your candles if you choose to! This class is limited to 20 people.
