Hohepa's principles are based on a holistic view of the human being which were developed by Rudolf Steiner. Anthroposophy also has a holistic understanding of the life circle. Work should be meaningful and make sense. The Candle workshop was initially setup to produce candles for Hōhepa and the wider community. Now we are proudly turning about 1000kg of Beeswax yearly into hand crafted high quality candles. The candles are made by a dedicated and hardworking team which creates all our candles with love, care and expertise. Some people have been participating in the Hōhepa Candle Workshop for about 30 years, others have started since we moved to Napier. We are producing a natural product out of 100% locally sourced Beeswax from Takapau Kintail Honey.
