Photos of various candles and equipment for the candle making workshop at L'Arche

Candle Making at L’Arche – another session soon!

Fab Candles at L’Arche Craft Workshop

The Candle making workshop at L’Arche in West Norwood was a great success – lots of people came and another workshop is being planned!

Some people asked if it was every weekend!

Here are some photos of the day – lots of lovely candles and a few ice candles were made too (the round ones with ‘holes’ in them which are beautiful) – the workshop was suppose to last a couple of hours but it went on all day – some people had to go back in order to finish the candles.

Another workshop will happen possibly the last week of November but we will post up information soon. (see below for L’Arche social media links and for Rock Paper Scissors & The Stitch who will be posting when it will be)

Szilvia makes a candle…

… and makes her mother proud 😀

Szilvia of ‘Fitness with Szilvia‘ and ‘Szilvia’s Pets‘ making her candle – a lot of people put colours in the wrong way around – the candle is made upside down – Szilvia’s colour scheme is based on a flame which is appropriate! – click the links to visit her facebook pages. (She has yet to decide on the name of her fitness business so the page is currently ‘Szilvia’s Fitness’ – I personally like the first version 😉

Cleaner and greener community award

• Wayne Trevor

Wayne volunteered at the West Norwood Feasts, ran a Trade School growing edible flowers, and has helped local residents with their gardens. For the past year Wayne has dedicated a vast amount of time on a new project called the West Norwood Bzz Garage. He approached the garage and got their permission to transform the space with attractive bee-friendly plants.

(quoted from Love Lambeth Website – please visit the Love Lambeth Website to see the other winners – well done everyone!

Wayne’s project was part of The Open Works scheme to help people in the community to kick start their ideas and help them network with others – As you may already know, we also started with The Open Works project as well as Rock Paper Scissors London group  – there are many other groups that are still growing from the Lambeth project which you can read more about it here. The Open Works you will also find their report – which is very stylish and huge! and goes into the why and how plus on how to expand the project to the other parts of the UK!

Please note the photos are from the sites you can visit by clicking on the images – I was unable to see names of who took them so if you know then I can credit them on this blog post.

This blog post has also been posted on The Rock Paper Scissors London website – Wayne helped the Stitch members to harvest the Lavender outside the West Norwood Bus Station to use for their crafts and helped drag all their materials and sewing machines to their storage place, so he is a very helpful man! 😀
