Hohepa workshop is a proud artisanal community of adults mostly with an intellectual disability in the Hawkes Bay. Here the residents practice ancient crafts connecting beauty with their highly developed skills.
Unique, well-crafted pieces highlight the wonderful talents and creativity of the Hohepa Weavers. Using only natural materials like wool, mohair, possum, cotton, silk and linen. Each weaver selects their materials and their own inspiration - making each piece very unique.
All the Hohepa Candles are made from 100% local beeswax with cotton wicking. Burning beeswax slowly perfumes the air with a subtle honey essence and as the wax burns slower the candles give off more light and heat than other candles. When lit, beeswax candles will pull dust, allergens and toxins out of the air. And if kept out of drafts beeswax candles will burn soot free and dripless.
