About

The Ursidae Workshop is me, Chris Schoen (they/them).  In 2020 the world changed and so did my life. After losing my job to the pandemic I started making candles and Ursidae Candle Company was born. 

As time went on I decided to add my love of the fiber arts to the mix. I have been knitting since I was a kid! Now the Ursidae Workshop offers hand poured soy wax candles and knit/crochet goods made locally in Richmond Virginia.
