This is a great workshop to get-together with other like-minded crafters. The Candle Alchemist Studio is located on the Isle of Anglesey in North Wales, where we teach candle making workshops throughout the year. Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, we're just just 3 miles from Newborough forest and Llanddwyn beach - an inspirational setting to learn the ancient craft of Candle Making.

Our classes take place in the wonderfully atmospheric, oak-beamed schoolhouse, dating back to the 1800's, where you can learn practical, hands-on candle making, in a fun and relaxed environment. Our groups are kept small to allow for individual attention, and can also be taught one on one. Booking is essential, please get in touch!

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All materials and equipment are provided for you, and at the end of the class you will take home all your handmade candles to enjoy or give away as special gifts to friends and family!

We also run a longer candlemaking workshop 'Practical Candlemaking ;- see listing for details.

PLEASE NOTE: the Workshop is on the first floor of the building and is accessed by a stone staircase. Booking for classes is essential.

We look forward to welcoming you to the wonderful art of candlemaking!
