Traditional candle making masterclass with Lola Lely & Yesenia Thibault-Picazo: Notting Hill
5th November 2019
Join us for a candle making masterclass at our Notting Hill farmshop. Designers Lola Lely and Yesenia Thibault-Picazo will introduce you to the fascinating craft of traditional candle making, demonstrating how to use materials and equipment to make high quality beeswax candles using the traditional ‘wax dipping’ method.
All abilities are welcome, and you’ll leave the workshop with a set of two dipped candles, one hand-twisted candle and six birthday candles for your home or to give to a loved one – all wrapped and stamped with a bespoke wax seal.
About Lola Lely & Yesenia Thibault-Picazo:
Lola Lely and Yesenia Thibault-Pizaco are multidisciplinary designers. Born in Hanoi, Lola grew up in London and was curious from an early age about how objects are made. Drawing, making and the connections between materials, processes and makers are all central to her practice. Yesenia is a musician alongside her design work and explores the narrative potential of materials through collaborations with experts in the fields of geology, anthropology and craft. She defines herself as a ‘material teller’ and uses design as a means to engage with diverse audiences on contemporary ecological challenges.
