Your Host

Artist, nature lover, farmer and mom, Marissa’s love for making things the old way is contagious.  Growing up rurally, and off the grid, making various necessities from scratch has been a way of life for Marissa from the beginning.

Her desire is to see old skills passed on through hands on experience, and she would love to have you join her for one of her small personal workshops.

What you’ll experience

With a typically longer burn time than standard poured candles, hand dipped beeswax candles are efficient, clean burning, and sustainable. 

Marissa will guide you through techniques including melting the wax, maintaining the needed temperature, and the hand dipping process. 

All participants will go home with a printed guide (including a list of easily sourced tools), and 6 of their own hand dipped candles.

What’s included
  • All tools needed during workshop.
  • 6 hand dipped taper candles to take home.
  • A light snack.
Things to Note
  • We will be handling hot wax, and though there is relatively minimal mess, please wear closed shoes and appropriate clothing.
  • Participants 15 and under must be accompanied by adult
