Working with bee wax at BCBC August meeting

Janet Peterson will lead a presentation on working with wax for candle making at the August 1st Buncombe County Beekeepers Chapter meeting. Hands-on projects and a demonstration of cleaning your wax will be included. Janet has studied with award winner Virgina Webb and with Orange County Beekeepers, routine winners in the wax competition at the NC State Fair in Raleigh, NC. While the State Fair in Raleigh has numerous submissions in wax, Janet notes that wax exhibits are typically absent at the NC Mountain State Fair. As part of her presentation, Janet will show you how to prepare a wax entry for NC Mountain State Fair in September 2011.

The Buncombe County Beekeepers Chapter will meet August 1, 2011 from 7-9pm in the community room at Grace United Methodist Church on 954 Tunnel Rd Asheville NC. Visitors welcome and memberships available at door.
