Learn basic woodworking skills while creating a functional and beautiful candle holder. This class offers a general overview of wood crafting while we share some fun and make tea light candle holders.
During this hands-on workshop, we will walk you through a project using reclaimed wood. We will plan the projects, select the wood and then cut, sand, drill, paint, stain, and finish reclaimed wooden planks to create tea light candle holders.
Everyone will create their choice of individual blocks or a single long board made to hold 5 candles. These make great centerpieces on a dining table or sitting atop a mantle.
Aprons will be provided, but please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a little bit dirty. Stain, paint, and finishing oils will stain your clothing!
