The Hellenic Museum and THEMATIKOS present Seasonal Scents: A Candle Making Workshop

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

27 Nov 2021 Once Only Event

Join us for an afternoon of history and craft at the Hellenic Museum, as we explore the history of candles and candle-making before pouring your very own take-home soy candle.

Assistant Curator Sara Prica will take you through the fascinating history of scent and light in Byzantine Orthodox tradition. Candles have been used as a source of light and to illuminate celebrations for more than 5,000 years, and together you’ll explore its deep roots in antiquity and in customs today.

THEMATIKOS will then teach you how to make a soy candle from scratch! Together, you’ll formulate a signature scent from a range of fragrances which will form the basis of your very own hand-poured candle. You’ll have the chance to name your creation, which will be yours to take home at the end of the workshop!
