Before the era of electricity, homes glowed at night with candlelight. Come to Sully Historic Site to learn about early lighting techniques through a hands-on display and a lesson in candle-dipping.
During the “Hands-on History-Candle Dipping” program, you’ll discover how a candle mold, betty lamp, beeswax and wicking were used in the olden days. End the session by making your own hand-dipped candle to take home.
The 45-minute programs begin at 1 and 2 p.m. on Sunday, February 24, 2019. The cost is $5 per person. Add a guided tour of the historic site for only $5 per person.
Sully Historic Site is located at 3650 Historic Sully Way, Chantilly, VA. For more information, call 703-437-1794 or visit Sully Historic Site.
