Beeswax Ornaments Demo

Mind Our Beeswax

Mind Our Beeswax

Theresa Kramer and her husband are scheduled for an Ohio Arts and Crafts demonstration in the Buggy Barn at Lehman’s this Saturday.  I asked her to share with us a little about what she does so Theresa wrote:  
My craft of making beeswax ornaments dates back to the sixteenth century.  German bakers started saving their bits of beeswax by melting it and pouring it in their cookie and candy molds.  They then used the decorations on their Christmas trees. German immigrants brought this art form to eastern Pennsylvania in the late seventeenth century.  I continue the tradition today.  I work out of my home and do local art and craft fairs.  I also have a web site:  www.mindourbeeswax.com.  The photo is of me and my husband Jim at Yankee Peddler last month.
This demo is part of an ongoing series of arts and crafts demos that will be at the store in the Buggy Barn.  To see future demos and other events go to the Events link at the top of this page.   

About Sue Steiner

I am a professional artist living in the Kidron area. With a farming background and my love for animals and anything agricultural it was a natural fit when Lehman's asked me to paint the murals you see at the Kidron store. My biggest project to date was the mural of a life sized team of Amish work horses at the hitching post in the Buggy barn. I have the pleasure of adding to the murals on an ongoing basis as a painting demonstration during store hours on many Fridays. I also have the pleausre of bringing Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild members to the store for a wide variety of demos. You can find the demo schedule on this web site under the Events tab. It is always a pleasure to be in the store meeting new folks. I find Lehman's customers to be the very best, down to earth people! It is also my pleasure to help network with all the talented artists and crafters in the area.
