What Can I Expect

Get crafting and creating on a beeswax candle making workshop! Learn how to make candles, hand cream, body butter and lip balm using natural beeswax at these classes near Windsor in Berkshire.

The busy British Buckfast bees in the apiaries provide the 100% natural beeswax that you'll be using to fashion your very own candle and beauty products. Beekeeper and artisan creator Elisabeth is a veritable fountain of knowledge when it comes to beeswax creations and she'll share her enthusiasm with you.

Candles made from beeswax are certainly more expensive than candles made from paraffin, but they are so much better for you, as they are naturally purifying, non-toxic and relaxing. But when you hear that it takes 10kg of honey to make 1kg of beeswax, you can see why such quality candles demand a higher price.

Using beeswax is, therefore, a great way to hand-craft your very own bespoke candles - and what's more the beeswax is totally local, coming from the bees in the very meadows surrounding the veranda workshop where you are sitting!

After learning how to roll and mould your beeswax candles, you'll move on to creating luscious lotions and balms, using blends of vitamin E oil, essential oils such as lavender and the beeswax. Beeswax in creams and beauty products helps to naturally seal the moisture in the skin.

We have to say, it's a truly wonderful setting for your lotions and beeswax candle making workshop, with the bees working hard to make the honey and beeswax, as Elisabeth teaches you how to handcraft your own candle and beauty lotion samples, which you'll be able to take home with you.
