About the Artform

Candle making is an old artform that has been practiced far and wide. The 13th century witnessed candle making becoming a guild craft in England and France.
It is a very vast artform which involves multiple techniques that are used to make candles of different styles and waxes.
A candle can transform any space and fortunately, they display a myriad of styles a few of which include pillar candles, scented candles and many more! A change in container can mean a change in the style of candle making thereby producing a different kind style each time.

Learnt a great deal about different types of waxes, wicks, etc, and how to make candles at home. Materials were delivered to me by Zwende and that helped a lot!
