Candle making parties case studies

Group workshop taster session - Girl Guides

THE BRIEF

To help Guides achieve their craft badge – a workshop for 25 Girl Guides in the art of candle-making.

THE EVENT

Presentation on candle-making over the years including a “guess-the-fragrance” game.  Then, with adult assistance, girls make their own natural soy candles in individual wax melters, adding dyes to make floating candles and tealights.  Whilst the soy candles set, each girl made beeswax candles using a rolling technique.

THE RESULT

A new craft badge for 25 Girl Guides – presented for having gained the knowledge of how candles work and how to make them using two types of wax and two candle-making techniques.

THE FEEDBACK

Great fun – thank you for running such a fun session for my Girl Guides.
