One-to-one Private Workshop


Our full -day workshop will teach you the skills of candle-making so you can make your own, unaided at home. In addition to using natural soy wax we introduce you to two other popular waxes: petroleum and beeswax beads. This is very much a hands-on course where you practice what you have learnt. At the end you take home the candles you have made plus a copy of our book "Making Candles" and our starter candle-making kit to enable you to make your own projects at home.
