Candle courses, live classes, kits, gifts and online workshops offered by UK candle makers. Wax is an unusual but alluring material to work with, and there are so many different kinds! Learn the techniques of candle making with manmade petroleum waxes such as paraffin wax (a great one for beginners to start with), vegetable waxes such as soy wax (is there any end to the advantages of soy?) and animal waxes such as beeswax, which contains numerous health properties. Beeswax candles actually cleanse your air as well as make your house smell beautiful!
