Honeybees, Nutrition & Crafts
Veteran Arts for Learning Teaching Artist Sharyn Farrel introduces audiences to the science behind beeswax crafts, healthy nutritional choices, and crafting workshops such as the basics of knitting! These programs are engaging fun for the whole family!
The Life of the Honeybee and 100% Beeswax Candle-Rolling!
Students receive a basic overview of the honeybee’s life-cycle and how beeswax production fits into that cycle. Large, colorful pictures on laminated sheets are passed around to help illuminate the basic elements of the beehive – especially as they relate to beeswax production.
Beeswax candles are then made by each student. Beeswax candles burn slowly, smell fantastic and are actually known to clean the air by removing dust particles – never leaving an unhealthy residue. Students receive pre-cut beeswax sheets with the highest quality wick which they then roll into two beautiful candles – they can keep their candles or place in gift bag provided and give as a gift! Student Maximum: 25 Class Length: 1 hour
Materials Fee: $4 per student
