Lighting a spark for festive fun

NORVILLE State School student Jakob Baumgartner enjoyed the fun and festivities of candle making at the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) yesterday.

“I really enjoyed candle making and I can’t wait to tell all my friends about it,” he said.

Professional candle maker and Ambience Soy Wax Candle Studio owner Anita Neuberger taught the children how to make fragrant multicoloured soy wax candles and decorate carry bags.

“The fragrance we have chosen in the Christmas spirit is Angel Kisses,” Ms Neuberger said. “It is important to know that the soy wax we use is a vegetable-derived product, as opposed to regular paraffin candles, which is a petroleum waste product.”

The workshop was part of a holiday craft-making series run by BRAG, which will continue until the new year.

Bookings are being taken for lantern-making workshops that will be held in the new year.

For further information, telephone BRAG on 4130 4750.
