Here is the latest excerpt from Iain's guest blog series charting his aims to build a socially responsible candle company working with disabled people. To find out more about his project you can read about it here on my Guest Beekeeping Blog Page. I hope you enjoy his latest post....he is on an amazing journey. 

Candlemaking Equipment

Recently I have taken to view the project that is Lucenarium, as to being like that of a journey. As with all journeys it starts with a desire to be somewhere else and often ends somewhere unexpected. But for me the best part of the adventure is what happens along the way ...

As you can see our new equipment is pretty amazing and full on! 

It has many great safety features, and has been specially designed for ease of use by people with learning disabilities. Finding this equipment was pretty amazing, because it seemed like it was designed with Lucenarium in mind.

But it has not all been plain sailing getting up to this point.

In fact finding the right equipment involved some quite unpleasant sailing!

A good friend of mine, Barnaby (winner of the prestigious ‘London Beekeeper of the Year’ award 2011) and I took a trip to Holland to visit the factory where they make this specialized equipment. I discovered that a ferry crossing in mid January can be quite rough indeed. It took me two days to stop feeling that drunken sea-sick sensation.
