Woman sculpting beewax candle

Learn the craft of traditional candle making using beeswax and take home your own individual creation - a masterclass from WAX Atelier artists. 

In this candle dipping masterclass WAX Atelier founders, Lola Lely and Yesenia Thibault-Picazo, will introduce you to the craft of traditional candle making, demonstrating how to use materials and equipment to make high quality beeswax candles using the traditional ‘wax dipping’ method. 

All abilities are welcome, and you’ll leave the workshop with a set of two dipped candles, one hand-twisted candle and six birthday candles for your home or to give to a loved one – all wrapped and stamped with a bespoke wax seal.

STORE STORE is an innovative London based community project which have teamed up with the Barbican to organise a series of individual artistic workshops. Designed to explore new materials and processes, every day a different artist, architect or designer is invited to teach a new craft.

This event has a limited capacity of 15 participants.

The workshop will last approximately 3 hours.
