Vintage Lighting Tour with Assistant Curator of History Neil Nohrden and Candle Making Workshop with Local Artist Daisy McClellan

Join Assistant Curator of History, Neil Nohrden for a brief tour of samples from the Museum’s historic lighting collection, showcasing early fat burning lamps to the Edison light bulb. Following the tour, local artist Daisy McClellan will lead a tranquil candle making workshop using vintage vessels. McClellan will instruct participants on the history of candle making and how to make candles from start to finish. Classic teacups, glasses and tins locally sourced by the artist will be provided to make eco-friendly and unique candles.  Participants will create two candles mixed with their individual scent combinations using a variety of fragrance oils and dried flowers.
