Paulaโ€™s Candle Making Webinar was excellent. Her creative and inspiring knowlege gave me the confidence that I can make a luxury candle. Due to COVID, our booked in house course was cancelled, however, then reschedule as a webinar course. The process of actually making a candle via webinar was amazing, and successful!! I canโ€™t wait to book my next course with Paula!!
