Course content

This is a basic introduction to making candles using beeswax. You will learn the candle making techniques as used

by hobby beekeepers i.e. rolled candles, moulded candles and, hopefully, dipped candles. You will take home any

candles you make and finish on the day, and also learn how beeswax is produced by honeybees, how it is

processed to produce wax suitable for candles and other uses, and, most importantly, safety when using and

melting beeswax to make candles.

Techniques covered in this class include:

 Making rolled beeswax candles

 Making moulded candles using silicone moulds

 Making tea lights

 Wick and the importance of using the correct size

 Making dipped candles

 Melting and using beeswax safely

 

Course Outcome

You will take home any candles you make and finish on the day and

hopefully have the confidence to use simple candle making techniques at

home to make a variety of candles.

All materials will be supplied. Please bring an apron to protect clothing.

It is very difficult to remove beeswax from fabric!

Additional Costs

None – but there will be beeswax and wick available to buy for use at home if required.

Lunch and refreshments

A complimentary light buffet lunch is included. Hot drinks may be purchased from the foyer, so please bring some

small change with you. Due to Health and Safety regulations we are unable to allow hot drinks into the

Leisure Centre. Students and tutors who need to smoke are asked to do so away from the immediate vicinity of

the College, so as not to cause an obstruction at College entrances or on pavements.

There are currently about 34,000 GPs. The RCGP says that increased pressures on the NHS, caused by factors such as an ageing population, mean the budget for general practice will face a £2.7bn deficit by 2021. This, it claims, will lead to a further 7,500 fewer GPs than it believes will be needed in eight years. "The fact that, in just eight years, we could see a shortfall of almost 16,000 GPs is truly shocking," said Clare Gerada, who chairs the RCGP. "General practice is at the heart of the NHS and if it is left to wither, as is the case now, it could sow the seeds of an unprecedented disintegration of the NHS, both in primary and secondary care."

They're favored to win their third consecutive title. As much as they appeared to be vulnerable last season, being forced to win one Game 7 against Indiana in the East Finals and a second Game 7 against the Spurs in the championship round after Ray Allen's miracle shot saved their season, they still have LeBron James, for starters.

    I'd like to cancel this standing order http://www.myh.org.uk/how-do-i-buy-accutane-slovenia.pdf#visited how do i purchase accutane treatment cost The first time I tried P90X yoga, Tony Horton tied me up in knots with the efficiency and coolness of a veteran Eagle Scout. I huffed, puffed, fell over a few times and was absolutely exhausted by the end of the session. Moreover, the infuriating serenity of Horton and his fellow trainers – in stark contrast to my grunts of exertion and clumsy stumbling – was anger-inducing and frustrating.
