An introduction to candlemaking as a business (with lunch included) run by Candlemaker of the Year 2020

This is me! I can't wait to welcome you to my Lavenham Studio
X

Description

This class is designed for total beginners, or those just starting out. It is beneficial for anyone considering starting a candlemaking business, giving you the tools to go away and start the experimenting you will need to do to make your business a success.

The workshop is held in a studio located in the stunning village of Lavenham, a medieval wool town, with stunning chocolate box cottages and independent shops.
This course focuses on the art of soy wax candlemaking, but does include a brief foray into paraffin wax.

It includes an introduction to materials, waxes/wicks/cores and containers. We cover the description of commonly used waxes, how to measure the correct quantities, perfume and their effects, pour temperatures and how to fix surface problems. The course will also explain the recent legislation changes and the CLP information that is required in order to sell your candles.

During the workshop, you will make and take away with you 1 x 250g glass, 1 x 3 wick candle, 3 x wax melt tablets, and 6 x paraffin wax, botanical/Christmas hangings. These are valued at over £65.00. We do not make tea-cup candles (these are completely unsafe and generally uninsurable) and we don't add botanicals to our candles - for the same reason.

I tend to have a maximum of 3 students, but can accommodate up to 8 for any special events (hen parties, etc.) at alternative premises nearby.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All tools and materials are included within the course, as are teas, coffees and a light lunch.

(Dietary restrictions need to be noted at the time of booking).

Rosie - - #31875

I booked this course as gift for my mum and I to help get our creativity flowing before Christmas. We had a wonderful evening, Jo made us feel welcome and relaxed and was very informative - we learnt much more than we expected about candles and candle making. We made some fabulous products to gift to friends and family... and for us too, our homes now smell amazing. Thank you Jo!

Evelyn Davies - - #31863

This was such a lovely, warm, relaxing and informative day and with all the incredible scents it felt like a relaxation course. I am really pleased that I signed up for this course, Jo was brilliant.

Jo was a very good teacher and was well prepared with everything we needed to hand. Jo happily shared her knowledge and experience as well as a wealth of stories. We seemed to cover so much in one day. We made some fantastic candles and melts which were totally unique as we all handpicked our embelishments and fragrances and got to take them all home!

I think this course would be a perfect present for someone!

I now feel confident to make my own products and can't wait to get started, initially making gifts for friends and family, then moving onto more saleable products.

Response from The White Candle Company:

Thank you for such a lovely review! I hope you're enjoying your candles and wish you loads of luck going forward x

In-person course
Kelly Fairbrother - - #30661

What can I say...so so glad I attended this course!
Firstly Jo is lovely, such a warm welcome and happy to share her experience and knowledge completely freely.
Personally I had watched every YouTube video, Googled everything I could think candle making related and followed every possible social media group I came across. For me the result was a scrambled mess of ‘knowledge’ with conflicting advice not to mention different countries so different rules!!
Spending the day with Jo gave me the correct knowledge and confidence to move forward with my ideas and start testing ready to finally start selling in the future.

Thanks again Jo x

Response from The White Candle Company:

This is such a lovely review Kelly. Thank you so much and best of luck moving forward, youll be fab xx

I travelled over from Ireland especially for this course. Jo is an absolute lady and so inspiring. The business she has built up from incredible hard work and dedication is evident. She was so informative with all of her advise and helped iron out all of the queries I had so that I now have the confidence to get down to work and take the next step. Very enjoyable day with very good company. Jo deserves every success.

When we attended the workshop due to the corona virus numbers were kept low, we were so thankful Jo still ran the workshop for us. What an experience, from the wonderful setting to the welcoming company from both Jo and Blossom is really was the prefect setting to take in the info on candle making. We chatted the whole time none stop, we went away with so much info we really did learn so much from it. Jo’s knowledge is fantastic all our questions answered and more. Thank you so much, we highly recommend the workshop 🙂

Ree - - #30175

I attended the course with no preconceived expectations and was pleasantly surprised with the positive experience. Jo is such a nice person and best of all she is an expert in her field and immensely knowledgeable.

Whilst most people make candle making sound daunting, Jo completely put me at ease and made the whole experience so much fun and filled me with confidence.

If you have any doubts then forget about them and get yourself booked on this course it is an amazing insight into the world of candle making and candle maker of the year Jo is truly an amazing host.

Claire Keen - - #30173

I participated in Jo’s course and I have to say it was absolutely amazing it exceeded my expectations by miles!!! I wasn’t sure what to expect but I couldn’t have wished for anything more.

Jo was so lovely I could have just chatted to her all day and not make any candles!!! Jo was so helpful, kind and patient with myself and my daughter and now she thinks Jo is the best thing since sliced bread!!!

I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to start a candle making business, learn a new skill or if you would like a great day out.

Response from The White Candle Company:

Ah! Thank you so much for this lovely review Claire. Amelia and you were both a pleasure to have in my studio and I look forward to seeing you again. x

I thoroughly enjoyed my day with Jo and her gorgeous pup Blossom. The course was perfect and answered everything I needed to know about getting started in the candle industry. The setting was beautiful, easy to find, with plenty of parking and a very smiley Jo ready to greet you with a warm welcome. I left the course feeling excited to start making my own candles with the knowledge and advice Jo had shared. I would highly recommend this course for anyone interested in setting up their own candle making business or just for pleasure.

Thank you so much Michelle. Wishing you the best of luck with your venture! x

Had a lovely morning candle making - Jo is very friendly and generous with her tips and knowledge of the business. The company and lunch were good too! It was a bonus to leave with beautifully packaged candles and visit the pretty town of Lavenham.

In-person course
Caroline - - #28790

What a great course - I learned so much about the art of candlemaking thanks to Jo and had a lot of fun along the way. Who knew wax has a memory?! We came back laden with beautifully scented candles of various sizes as well as melts and much more. Jo's knowledge and enthusiasm is infectious and she's inspired me to have a go at making my own candles. Her workshop is in Lavenham which is a great spot to explore afterward too.

In-person course
Joanne - - #28320

I attended the introduction to candle making course as a business.
Jo was an excellent teacher, really warm and friendly and so knowledgable with everything she taught. Small group sizes means that everyone was attended to fully. There are several important and pertinent safety and legal implications that one should know about if considering doing this as a business.
We made a few different selection of candles to take home with a few different choices of scents, these make wonderful gifts! The day was laid back and informal and I can't rave highly enough about the lovely Jo and her assistant all so friendly and helpful.
I highly recommend this course to anyone, plenty of free parking at the venue with facilities. Lovely area of Lavenham which is so beautiful to visit after the course.
Gift vouchers available which I believe make wonderful gifts for anyone that likes crafts.
A really enjoyable and fun day, I can't recommend highly enough.
Thank you so much!

Brian Petchey - - #28307

Attended the candle making course, only two "students" and Jo, and we had an amazing day. Not only did we learn how to make candles but also the legalisation concerning the selling of the products. The puppy was adorable ....

In-person course
Helen Ross - - #28299

I attended Jo’s course yesterday. It was fantastic. It was so interesting learning about the different waxes and how they react to the environment when melted. I loved the variety of essential oils that I was able to choose from for my candles. Can’t recommend this course enough. Going to revisit later in the year. Thank you so much Jo for a wonderful day.

In-person course
Clare Morrison - - #28152

We attended Jo’s candle making course on 8th Feb and had the most wonderful time. We made a fabulous array of candles & melts of different sizes and fragrances under her tutelage and came away feeling fully confident to make our own. Jo is very welcoming and we also got to meet her utterly adorable 10 week old puppy Blossom. I thoroughly recommend this course whether you are looking to start a business or just do this for pleasure like us. Clare Morrison

Kelly Campbell-Staines - - #27574

Booked this course with absolutely no idea about candle making. Found the venue easily and met two other women who were also taking the course. Jo, the wonderful lady teaching the course made me feel really relaxed and at home. The course was fun and really informative, I couldn’t believe the amount of knowledge I came away with. Most importantly I had so much confidence to get home and start planning my candle making business, I also came home with a huge goody bag of candles and melts I had made with the fragrances I chose.
If you are only thinking about booking this course, don’t hesitate, there are very few candlemaking courses around that teach this amount of info and Jo is so lovely!! Book today as she gets booked up quickly. I may have to book again with a friend as it was so much fun.

In-person course
Jane - - #27260

Highly recommended! We booked this as a Christmas present to ourselves rather than more needless gifting. We are all avid fans of Jo’s candles so this was perfect. Brilliantly fun morning and anyone could do this (I’m not crafty at all and did wonder if I’d mess it up - FYI, it’s not possible to do so). Jo is so friendly and welcoming I felt I’d known her for years and she really we involved with us. Lunch was scrummy too and we got a lovey haul of awesome products to take away with us. I’d do it all again in a heartbeat!

Faye - - #27241

Since discovering Jo’s candles i have not purchased any other brand as i just love everything about hers. They burn fab and smell devine!

Steve Fox - - #24082

What a hoot we had - Jo really knows her stuff and it wasn't too long before we were confidently making candles and melts. I really enjoyed tailoring my creations with all sorts of fragrances and I particularly loved making the wardrobe fresheners too - there were jars brimming with dried flowers and spicy fruit which meant I was making something truly unique to me. I'm looking forward to giving the things I've made as personal gifts to my family and friends at Christmas (although I may keep the rhubarb candle as it smells amazing.). I can't recommend this experience enough, what a brilliant day out!

I would 100% recommend this course to anyone.

Me and my friend did the Saturday course and had so much fun.

It is very personal and you can ask Jo anything! You get to pick your own scents for your candles and take so much stuff home that you make.

I was interested in starting a little business on the side and Jo was so helpful and informative and answered all the questions I had.

If you are looking to do something different and fun - I would say this is definitely the course.

Thank you so much Jo for a really fab day!!

If you are looking to start candle-making as a new hobby, a business, or just want to spend a fun morning with some friends, I would thoroughly recommend this workshop. Jo is very friendly, knowledgeable (and patient) and guides you through all the basics including different types of wax, fragrances and stockists and shares her tips and experiences. The course is wrapped up with lunch which is served downstairs in a quaint little tea room while Jo packages up all your masterpieces ready for your departure. Myself and 3 friends had a lovely day and came away feeling that we had learned a lot. Thank you Jo.

Lots of lovely scents to chose from.
We were a small group, and I thoroughly enjoyed the day learning a new skill and chatting. We also had lunch, homemade soup which was delicious with bread and some great honey and almond cake, in the cafe downstairs.

What a great way to spend a cold winter's day! Jo was an excellent teacher and host. I had not realised that there was so much to learn about candles, let alone the process of making them. The time passed quickly and we all managed to produce some lovely candles and melts which were magically packaged while ate our lunch in the cafe downstairs. My family were equally impressed. Many thanks Jo, highly recommended!

Hello Jo

Thank you so much for a very fun, relaxing and informative day. Your knowledge of candle making is inspiring and taught in a clear and easy to understand way.
Making candles in different sizes, also wax melts and Christmas tree hangings was great and choosing our own fragrances for them was fun. Going home with a bag of boxed candles was an added bonus.

Many thanks

Response from The White Candle Company:
