  • Dec 2015 Club Meeting - Candle dipping
    December 1, 2015 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

    Location: Fitchburg Public Library, 5530 Lacy Rd, Fitchburg, WI 53711, United States

    Before the dipping starts, I will discuss cleaning up wax, whether scraps from the apiary or from cappings. We will also cover container and molded candles, and how to make just one candle from your first tiny wax harvest. Everyone will leave with a rolled candle, and a pair of dipped candles. I hope you can make time in your busy schedule for this interesting and informative evening. (People who already know all this are invited to visit with each other and with newer members.) Thanks!
