Light up those dark autumn nights by creating your own teacup candles.

You can bring your own teacups and small jars (or the museum can provide) to create your very own teacup candle. You can even pick your own colour and scent.

All of the materials you’ll need to make your candle will be provided. Fill your teacups and jars with the candle wax, wick, colours and scented oils. And while you wait for your candle to cool down and set – you can explore the museum’s beautiful synagogue too.

You can also find out more about how candles are used in Jewish culture.

Designed for ages 6+ and no experience is necessary to attend this workshop. Perfect for friends, families and even dates.

This workshop is drop in between 12pm and 1pm and should last 30 to 45 minutes. Please book in advance.
