Candle making in Solheimar is a creative process done by hand. Most of the candles are of beeswax, but some are also made of paraffin wax and a number from recycled wax. They are typically reserved for indoor use. Candle and wax sculptures are also created and many are used in decorating Solheimar’s interior spaces as well as being a part of the annual Summer Art Festival. To donate leftover wax and candles for use in the workshop, turn in your materials at the nearest Olis petrol station or at the recycling center in Sorpa.
