The Hellenic Museum and THEMATIKOS present Seasonal Scents: Mother's Day, the first of our popular candle-making workshops for 2023. Grab your mum or gather your friends, join us for some history and craft, and come away with your own custom candle to gift or keep!
What to Expect
Seasonal Scents is no ordinary candle workshop. This program combines craft with history, and opens with the Hellenic Museum introducing participants to the fascinating history, uses and traditions surrounding candles and fragrance through time.
Then, with your newfound historical grounding, you'll learn to make your own soy candle from scratch with the help of artisans from THEMATIKOS. Formulate a signature scent from a range of fragrances and use this as the basis of your own hand-poured candle. Finally, name your creation and take it home.
This unique and hands-on experience is perfect for Mother's Day, sharing with friends, or simply connecting with yourself.
The THEMATIKOS brand was started by a mother and son in Melbourne. Inspired by the power scent has to trigger nostalgia, they develop blends that draw upon their Greek heritage and life in Melbourne while also blurring the lines between classical antiquity and contemporary minimalism.
