Traditional candle dipping and carving is a popular fundraising activity for all age groups that gives participants a beautiful souvenir to take home. Participants dip their wicks into coloured pots of wax until the candle reaches desired thickness. It is then moulded and carved into wonderful shapes including flowers and animals.. Making candles is a fun and very affordable activity, promoting confidence, creativity and positive self-image. It is also a popular team building activity.
