Holiday Eco-Crafts Workshop ~ Candles & Paper
Sunday, December 18, 2011
1:00 - 4:30 pm
Princeton-Blairstown Center
158 Millbrook Rd. Hardwick, NJ 07825

LEARN the colonial American skill of Candle-making... with a modern twist. Bring your old, used candles and we will melt them down and recast them using both the dip and mold methods.

Pine needles and hemlocks cones will be provided for adornment.

Reclaim the lost resource of old candle wax,
and make beautiful gifts for the holidays!

LEARN the easy, fun and practical craft of Paper-making. We will use recycled paper stock (which we will mix in a blender!) and hand-made frames and deckles to create functional, unique paper that is great for holiday cards.

We will also explore printing w/ potato stamps, and using Milkweed silk and Cattail fluff as local, natural fibers. You can also bring your dryer fuzz/lint to add to the pulp mix!

SNACKS ~ Please bring a wholesome snack to share (like crackers, cookies, cider).

Workshop is appropriate for adults and children.
Children must be supervised by adults, due to use of stove and blender.

Cost: $10 for adults, $5 for children

Please RSVP to Event host: Elyssa Serrilli ( elyssa dot serrilli at gmail dot com ) or through this site.

Thanks, and look forward to seeing you there !

    Thank you so much to everyone who came out! We made candles using recycled candle wax in the dip and mold methods. We made paper holiday cards using shredded paper, cattail fluff, milkweed fluff, and potato stamps! It was so nourishing to see the creativity flying, and to be crafting w/ 3 mother-daughter pairs. Thanks also to Michelle, workshop helper extraordinaire. See you all next time :)

    Hey folks,

    This event is cross-listed on a couple of sites. Right now, we have about 5 people signed up. Event will run regardless of signup... but, please do RSVP if you are coming. It's been really fun the past 2 years.

    LOGISTICS ~ Event will be help in the Egner Dining Hall at PBC. Come in the main entrance, follow the road around the lake, and park in the main parking lot at the end, behind the dining hall.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
