Christina and Dimitris Polixas invited everybody to create their own manufactured candles. It was fun especially for the children, although you had to have some patience – half an hour for one candle is almost impossible: It was better to take the procedure like a kind of meditative work with each layer of colour to slowly dry and cool out by waving it gently on the strings.
The mixing colours was fascinating – how different the tones became while the candles became bigger and bigger! And Dimitris showed with a lot of skill, how to create different kinds of ornaments out of the body of the candle.
Thanks a lot for this beautiful workshop!
