Swiss Tradition - Candle Drawing 

Dear exchangies,

Advent Season with the many Christmas markets, mulled wine stands, etc. is coming up soon. To get ourselves in the right mood for Christmas, we're going candle drawing on Saturday, the 11th of December. Candle drawing is very popular in Switzerland during Advent Season and has a very traditional character.

Candle drawing describes the making of candles, which you "draw" out of molten wax. They are usually done with bee wax, which gives off a very nice smell once your light the finished candles or with normal wax which doesn't smell great but allows you to draw multi-coloured candles!

Get yourself in the mood for Christmas and on the go draw your own candle(s) with us - especially if you've never done it before. We're looking forward to spending a chill, creative, and most of all fun morning with you! :D


P.S.: A COVID-certificate if mandatory for this event.

P.P.S.: The candles may be the perfect personal Christmas present for your grandparents or family. ;)
