Beginners Candlewicking

Sat March 28 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Learn the basics of candlewicking, by spending an hour with us as part of the Bathurst Heritage Trades Trail, and you might find yourself addicted!

Candlewicking is a form of embroidery that traditionally uses an unbleached cotton thread on a piece of unbleached calico. It gets its name from the nature of the soft spun cotton thread, which was braided then used to form the wick for candles.

Class is limited to 6 participants
Not suitable for children.

Cost is $15 and includes a Candlewicking Kit (instructions, pattern, fabric, thread, and needle). Please bring along a plain lead pencil, or a water-erasable pen if you have one.

Attendees must have a Heritage Trades Trail ticket.
