About the Course

*Please note....adults only.

This advanced candle making class, was developed, in order to move on to learn new techniques in candle making from our beginners candle making class. You will need to have a good knowledge of Beginners candle making in order to progress to this class, as it only offers advanced teaching, and we would not have time to the basics.

Your class will demonstrate, discuss and explain, so many different candle techniques, such as ice candles, cupcake candles, wax melts with a twist, Ice-cream sundae, marbling, detailing, mould candles (and the pros and cons of different moulds). We learn layering, how glitter and other decorative items can play a part in candles, what containers, could be problematic for a host of reasons, and coloured inserts in candles, to name a few.

You will be surrounded by the beautiful Essex countryside in a village setting. After cups of tea (and or coffee/cold drinks) & posh biscuits! And you have finished your class, you will take away your goodies, in your very own bag.

Our workshops are fun, friendly, informative and inspiring, we aim to send you away with a smile and some handmade gifts for you or others and the confidence to start making your own candles. If you love candles and would like to take the next step in producing decorative and unusual candles...Then this is the class for you.

*Please note we use, pre-coloured and pre-fragranced wax, as we believe, it is better for you to learn to fragrance and colour candles, after making your own choices of product and through practice at home
