During Basic Candle Making 101, participants use bee’s wax, soy wax, palm kernel, and paraffin wax to fashion an array of candles, including floating candles, massage candles, and jar candles. The Artesian Cheese Making 101 class empowers participants with the knowledge to transform milk into various types of cheese using special equipment, unique ingredients, and cultures. Students leave the class with recipes for cheeses such as feta, queso blanco, and paneer. During the soap-making class, instructor Donna guides students through the process of crafting their own 1-pound loaf of soap—which equals seven or eight bars—which they take home along with an instruction book. One-month members can also participate in the studio’s other classes, such as winemaking and herbalism. View the class calendar here.
