Handmade Easter Candles

A 3 Days' Workshop in Stoupa

Handmade Easter Candles

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!
