Meet Your Instructor: Amanda

Your workshop will be conducted by Amanda, a creative crafter, and a dedicated beekeeper with a passion for sustainability. As the loving mother of Robert, the owner of Kinedale Donkeys, Amanda brings her expertise and warmth to guide you through crafting beeswax items.

What to Expect:

In this engaging two-hour workshop, you'll craft a set of six beeswax firestarters wrapped in cotton and infused with natural fragrances like cinnamon and pine, as well as reusable beeswax food wraps that are perfect for keeping your food fresh and reducing single-use plastic waste. Enjoy a coffee break, meet the donkeys and friends before finishing by hand rolling candles.

Workshop Highlights:

Create Six Beeswax Firestarters: Craft a sustainable set of firestarters that not only light your fires but also fill your home with seasonal scents.

Make Beeswax Food Wraps: Craft reusable and eco-friendly food wraps that help reduce plastic waste in your kitchen.

Hand Rolled Candles: Roll at least two candles from beeswax sheets, to create tall tapered candles for candelabras.

Price: £38 per person

As always, we'll provide hot beverages and treats to keep you warm and refreshed during the workshop. Plus, you'll have the opportunity to spend time with our friendly donkeys and other animals, adding an extra layer of warmth and joy to your visit.
