The aroma of beeswax permeating the Farm Education Building strikes visitors as soon as they arrive. Traditional candle dipping using beeswax creates special memories at Aullwood. As a chill comes on with shorter days, visitors anticipate this wonderful hands-on activity. The glow of a dipped candle is the perfect way to “warm up” a cold winter night. Individuals, families, scout troops, and youth groups will enjoy making red and/or blue colored candles. The cost is a general admission fee of $5.00/adults and $3.00/child (members of Friends of Aullwood and National Audubon Society are admitted free) plus $1.00 for each candle made.Sun, 12/11/2016 - 14:30 Program
