Making Candles

Another fun tradition in November is candle making.  Kids of all ages and adults stand around huge pots of hot (coloured) wax and dip a wick time and time again, until an hour or two later, the most beautiful, colourful, creative candle emerges.  Sometimes this happens outdoors, sometimes indoors, depending on the location and organization hosting it.  Cost is very reasonable – one pays by the weight of the candle.

A couple of places in Uster have candle making in November:
