One Hundred and One
Jodie Young’s father, a beekeeper for over twenty years, taught her how to dip beeswax candles by hand in his shed at No.101, her childhood home. Learning how to dip candles forced me to take a breath; to take time and give complete focus to one small task. This slow craft has become meditative, an act of self-care. Using beeswax that has been sourced from beekeeping and wax suppliers in the UK, each candle is dipped between 5-25 times to achieve burn times of between one and eight hours, perfect for slow, intimate conversation or big, joyful celebration.
