If you're ever visiting Greytown you must drop into the Village Art Shop. It's run by the lovely and inspiring Janie ~ the shop window is always enticing with beautiful art supplies, books and bits of gorgeousness. Even if you don't need art supplies I guarantee you will find something of interest and inspiring.
Every holiday period Janie runs art and craft workshops for children. Yesterday Charlie and Sadie attended a candle making workshop.
Charlie was a little apprehensive at first, but when I picked him and Sadie up afterwards he told me that 'he loved it'.
They made candles in moulds and then hand dipped candles in beautiful rainbow colours. Each time they dipped their wick into the hot wax it was followed by a dip in cold water. Gradually with each dip the candle built up.
Beautiful ~ we are going to light them on Christmas Eve.
