The last in a series of HoliDIY workshops hosted by The Women’s Center for Creative Work and Otherwild, the Meditation of Candle Making teaches the calming effect of hand-dipping your own beeswax candles. Led by the Lower Lodge’s Hannah Vainstein, this isn’t your typical Crafternoon — the focus here is on the magic and art of this ancient process (humans have been turning beeswax into candles since 40 B.C.E). You’ll leave with as many tapers as you manage to dip, and the skills to make more at home. With its mild honeyed scent, beeswax won’t overwhelm the aromas of turkey and gravy at your Thanksgiving table, which makes it the perfect dinnertime candle. Any extras will make great gifts — how awesome would it be to light a menorah filled with your own hand-dipped candles? This is one DIY workshop that will have you glowing, literally. Otherwild, 1932 Echo Park Ave., Echo Park; Thurs., Nov. 13, 7-9 p.m.; $75 (incl. materials). (323) 546-8437, otherwild.com.
