Really enjoyed the workshop, very well lead. Informative yet relaxed. Kerry is very personable and her love for what she does shines through. It’s made me think hard about doing this as more of a business than a hobby. The morning flashed by, lots of laughs too along the way. Highly recommend x
From start to finish Kerry gives you in depth instructions and information all about candles. And you leave smelling beautiful!
The loveliest morning yesterday in Kerry's cosy kitchen chatting all things candle. Kerry was very knowledgeable and welcoming, and her attention to detail is amazing, from the personalised name tags to the crumble recipe on the back of our candle workshop notes. I'm looking forward to burning my newly made candle, and also making another with the fragrance blend we made on the day. Highly recommend!
Lovely morning at Can to Candle workshop. Kerry was a great teacher sharing lots of tips and hints. Brought home a candle and my own mixed oils ready to make another one. Fun and relaxing way to spend a morning with delicious fruit crumble and cream to keep us going.
What a lovely way to spend the morning
You were so informative I want to get started candle making , yes you fired me with enthusiasm !
Thank you. Definitely recommend this class lots of fun too .
I've just had a lovely morning with Kerrylyn at her candle making workshop. She puts everyone at ease so there was a very relaxed atmosphere. Great range of fragrances and goodies to choose from. Delicious refreshments too. Would definitely attend future courses. Thank you, Kerrylyn.
Lovely morning spent with Kerry who made us feel so at home & showed us/taught us so much. Fantastic course which would thoroughly recommend.
Thank you so much Kerry, I'm loving the candles too.
Lovely morning learning about candle making and fragrances. Kerry is a fantastic hostess, supplying us with personalised candle labels, lots of knowledge from her experience and a truly yummy homemade crumble.
Feel quite inspired now to find out more. Thank you so much
I bought this as a gift for my mum (and one for myself to join in) and we had a really great time. It was a very interesting and informative morning, gorgeous setting and a warm and friendly welcome. I'd highly recommend, and would even do the same course again. Thanks!
I spent the most wonderful morning in Kerry's beautiful kitchen at one of her candle making workshops. I have always wanted to learn how to make my own candles and now feel confident and armed with the skills to make my own creations at home. Kerry is so welcoming, and extremely knowledgeable. She took us through the different wax types, how to choose fragrances, and the candle making process itself was very relaxed and enjoyable. My personalised candle I took home with me has since brought me lots of joy, and has burned beautifully and evenly thanks to Kerry's candle care tips. Thank you Kerry for a fantastic morning, not to mention the delicious fruit crumble for elevenses!
Just completed one of Kerry’s candle making workshops and it was fantastic! A lovely welcoming environment where Kerry taught us wonders about candle making and candle care. A really wonderful way to spend the morning and enjoy some time being creative. I also now have a wonderful candle to use at home and my own unique fragrance to make another candle at home.
I thoroughly enjoyed the candle-making workshop. I knew nothing on arrival, but Kerry's welcome and engaging manner ensured that I went away inspired by the easy and confident manner in which the various parts of the workshop were delivered. All I need is the time to pursue a new hobby! This is good value, interesting and fun! Do treat yourself and book this workshop. You go home with a candle you have made and, in case you haven't quite caught the 'bug', a small bottle of fragrance (of your own choice and blending) for your next candle!
The workshop was very enjoyable and the atmosphere relaxed. I love the fact we were sitting around Kerrylyn’s kitchen table.
The whole process, from booking to workshop was seamless with Kerrylyn providing information and gift vouchers as requested. Kerrylyn sets the tone of the workshop which is light hearted, fun and informative. I would highly recommend the experience and I look forward to attending another one.
Fabulous! I spent a wonderful morning at Kerry's workshop. She is so welcoming, knowledgeable and funny. We learned so much about making candles and how to care for them too. We hand poured our candles and mixed our own fragrance to use again. While waiting for our candles to set, she produced a fabulous fruit crumble, absolutely delicious. A wonderful host who passes on all her knowledge of her craft in an interesting and amusing way. The 2 hours passed too quickly!! Would thoroughly recommend this workshop to anyone.
Really great experience. Thoroughly enjoyed hearing about all the different kinds of wax and fragrances, as well as choosing my own and making a candle. We also mixed our own fragrance to take away. We were well looked after, with coffee and crumble and it was nice to meet all the other people too. Kerry has got this workshop just right for a really enjoyable a Saturday morning.
I attended a workshop yesterday with a friend and loved it. I learned a lot about candles and we left with a bag full of goodies. Kerry was lovely and very knowledgeable about her craft. The workshop was great and very relaxed. It was like spending time at a friend's! I would highly recommend it.
I had a wonderful time at Kerry's workshop. She gave great instructions and lots of information in candle making. The setting was beautiful - in her lovely kitchen surrounded by lots of bottles full of lovely scents to choose from for the candles, along with fairy lights, many cups of coffee, and an amazing fruit crumble. I love arts and crafts and felt this was one of the best workshops I've attended - Kerry's very creative and shared her knowledge without holding back. It's something lovely to do on your own or with a friend.
I spent a lovely morning at Kerry’s candle workshop. Would highly recommend to anyone who is thinking about making their own candles. Kerry is lovely & happy to share all her top tips that she has gathered over the years. The materials supplied for making your candle are beautifully set out & the tea & lemon tarts were very welcome! Thank you for a lovely morning- I would definitely recommend this workshop!
I have just had the loveliest morning at Kerry's candle course. Nice chat with nice company and in beautiful surroundings. And the scents were wonderful. I've always wanted to try candle making but before I went I wondered if I would really be able to do it at home but Kerry was very informative and I can't wait to make another candle in my own kitchen with the kit I bought. Thank you so much Kerry, just what I was needing at the moment.
I loved the workshop. A lovely way to spend a morning learning a new craft. Very informative and very well run by Kerry. Would highly recommend.
Had a wonderful morning at a candle making workshop with Can to Candle today. Held in Kerry’s gorgeous home in Temple in Midlothian, she showed us how to make our own personalised candles to take away and also helped us to create our own unique fragrance blend to take away also.
Kerry was very knowledgable and shared lots of hints and tips learned from her own experiences. Beautiful products available to buy and plenty of coffee and a homemade fruit crumble that was unreal - she even shared the recipe!
Great for a bit of ‘me time’, as a gift or to learn a new hobby. I’ll definitely be booking up again! 🕯
Enjoyable morning. Kerryanne was very welcoming, very informative and answered all questons asked. Learned more than I thought I could about candle making. Would highly recommend.
I had an amazing time on this comprehensive candle making workshop. I came away with so much knowledge and an amazing bespoke candle! The surroundings were gorgeous and Kerry's hospitality was second to none. I'd highly recommend it.
A great workshop which was set up beautifully in Kerry’s lovely home. Lots of great information about the types of wax, scents etc used to make candles and how to burn them properly. I would recommend this as a lovely way to spend a morning.
Response from Can To Candle:Hi Jude,
What a fun morning! I met lots of lovely people, learnt all about candles and their scents. It was information packed and brilliantly explained, with full notes so I don’t forget anything! I shall certainly recommend the workshops and products to all my friends. Well done Kerry!
Excellent course - a perfect way to spend a morning. Friendly , informative and fun with the bonus of your own candle to take home and impress everyone with.
A very enjoyable time learning and making candles in a relaxed, informal and fun environment. Thank you so much!
What a great way to spend a Monday morning. Kerry is so enthusiastic about candle making, she made the class fun and we learned so much. I must mention the crumble too. That went down very well. Looking forward to making another candle with my starter kit. Thank you Kerry.
What a fantastic morning I had with this lovely, informative and funny lady. I came out grinning from ear to ear. Highly recommended!!!
Kerry’s class was excellent. She was a warm, friendly host and the number in the class meant interaction with everyone. She made everyone feel very welcome in her home and was full of great tips and ideas. Highly recommended!
What a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning, sitting in a beautiful kitchen with lovely people, learning how to make a soy candle, choose fragrances and blends, chatting about why it's important to trim the wick and burn your candle properly, highly recommend. Oh and added bonus of homemade crumble and amazing coffee!
I had a wonderful day at the candle making course this morning .... who knew you should cut your candle wick each time you use a candle! Learned loads, Kerry was a fantastic, knowledgeable and enthusiastic host. Would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to spend a very relaxing morning creating lovely candles. A+++
Had a brilliant morning at Kerry’s candle workshop in her lovely home. We made our own candle then a personalised scent. I learnt so much about candles that morning. Kerry was fantastic, very friendly and even made us delicious crumble while our candles set!
Would thoroughly recommend this.
We had such a lovely morning creating our own candles and learning more about how to burn them properly!!
Kerry was brilliant and made us all feel very welcome. Would love to come back again 😀
Had a lovely morning meeting new people having tea and learning the craft of candle 🕯 making.
Thank you Hazel.
Just spent a lovely Saturday morning with Kerrylyn learning the do's and don'ts of candlemaking. Done in the friendly, warm, informal environment of Kerrylyn's home, we were introduced to a world we knew very little about until today, and all conducted by the loveliest of hostesses. I would highly recommend this activity for a fun and rewarding day out.
Had the most lovely Sunday morning on Kerry's candle making workshop. We were welcomed in to her lovely home, where Kerry explained her reasons for starting her own business, showed us how to make our own candles, our own oil fragrance and explained the right and wrong ways to burn candles.
Kerry was extremely friendly and knowledgeable in her craft. Once we had made our candles and fragrance, Kerry served up a very delicious warm crumble with cuppa, which gave us more time to chat to others in the group and ask any questions we may have, I also purchased a starter pack for a very reasonable price. I have made a scent that I hope to use in making my own candles for my wedding day.
I would definitely recommend to anyone and will be back for the Christmas workshop.
Excellent course, made very welcome and very interesting to hear all about various types of candles
Thoroughly enjoyed candle making, Kerry was lovely and made us feel relaxed and welcome. The crumble was amazing too. Would definitely recommend this workshop.
A brilliant way to spend a Sunday morning. Interesting and informative session in a relaxed friendly environment. Kerry is the perfect person to learn from - friendly, warm, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her work. I gained knowledge on different aspects of candles (never realised there was so much to know) and left with the lovely candle I made. I also mixed another fragrance which I brought home too.
All this with tea, coffee and a lovely fruit crumble (completely free from nuts, dairy, gluten etc. ), so safe for everyone.
Terrific gift to receive and would recommend it to everyone. Even those who think they cannot make anything!
What a lovely morning! The setting is lovely, Kerry is a fabulous host and makes great crumble!! We learnt loads about candle making, and how to get the most out of your candles. We were able to choose a scent for our candles, a candle you’d usually spend about £20 on!! Then we made our own custom scent with Kerry’s help to use in future candle making or on oil burners. It was such a lovely and relaxing morning! I would definitely recommend!
I was given a voucher for Kerry’s candle making workshop and it has been a great gift. The workshop was informative and fun. Kerry is knowledgeable, hospitable and friendly and the whole experience was relaxed, with a few giggles along the way. There’s a great satisfaction in choosing and mixing aromas. As well as making my candle there was another treat, a fabulous homemade crumble with our coffee! I can thoroughly recommend a workshop and I’m really hoping I can go back for a Christmas workshop too.
Fantastic insight to candle making, didn't know there were so many options to use in candle making in terms of the wax to use to make the right product. Kerry was very knowledgable and not afraid to share her trade secrets and early failures. An amazing array of scents to make use of when designing your own individual fragrance. Coffee was great, company was great, the fruit crumble was superb much better than aunt Bessie’s any day of the week. Will certainly be back for more hints and tips. Could wax lyrical all day, a truly wonderful gift to give to anyone looking for something different. Thanks for having us.
Attended the course today and I would thoroughly recommend it. The surroundings are lovely, hospitality from Kerry is great, including homemade crumble. Her knowledge and help was also fantastic and she had a lovely personality that made the morning fun from start to finish. I would have no hesitation in recommending and am already thinking about booking again for the future.
This is my second candle workshop with Kerry and it was just as informative and fun as the first. The workshops are held in Kerry’s home so there is a lovely relaxed and homely feel to them and the home baked delicious crumble definitely added to that!
Thanks again Kerry and I’ll definitely be booking another workshop nearer to Christmas so I can add extra skills to my hobby.
Such a lovely setting! Really enjoyed it! Wholesome and interesting! Looking forward to the festive workshop already! X
What a lovely way to Spend a saturday morning. Kerrylyn makes you feel at home and helps you relax and enjoy the class. You take home your hand crafted candle and scent. I also found out about how to burn your candles correctly and different waxes. Who,d have thought there was so much to learn.
What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday morning! Kerry runs this course from her stunning home in the picturesque village of Temple. You learn so much in a short space of time, get to meet like-minded crafters and even get your own candle and scent mix to take away. Can't recommend highly enough!
Very well organised with great communication before course. There was an ease to the booking and then finding the venue. Kerrys base is her gorgeous kitchen with was beautifully set up for us arriving. Refreshments were on offer throughout the workshop and a bonus was the homemade fruit crumble halfway through. Very informative and we all made a lovely candle to take away and a fragrance blend. Discussions about types of wax, containers, why candles burn wrong and how to use - this really did answer a lot of questions I had. This was a great workshop and I would thoroughly recommend..
Had a lovely time at the candle making workshop. Friendly and informative in a cosy setting. Can totally recommend this ..
Thoroughly enjoyed this workshop! A fun and informative class beautifully presented. Kerrylyn is warm and friendly and the setting of the class is soooo inviting! The pace and length is just right, and Kerrylyn delivers it all perfectly in a well thought out structure. I came away feeling like I had achieved something that I could continue to do at home and get real enjoyment from. Highly recommend and I will definitely be booking up again for Christmas! Thank you!
Loved it thank you 🤗
Went along to Kerry's class and had a lovely morning learning about and making my own beautifully scented candle. She has lovely personal touches ready, our own personal labels already printed, so a lot of thought and work goes into the preparation. My sisters and my daughter came along too. Great idea for birthday and Christmas gift for them and they were chuffed to come away with their own candles and personal scent to experiment with.
Good communication ahead of the visit so I knew where I was going, and I had an idea of what scents I might like before I got there as I had sent for some sample from Kerry beforehand.
She provided a delicious fruit crumble too and tea or coffee so we felt very well looked after. Lovely morning out!!
Absolutely fabulous workshop. Loved every minute. Thanks so much
Just spent a fabulous morning with Kerry @cantocandle learning how to make soy candles and blend fragrances. She’s an excellent host who explained the process in easy to understand steps. Amazing rural setting within a kitchen workshop, very quaint, very relaxed. Will be recommending this workshop to all my friends 💕
Super course! Beautiful setting to spend the morning - Temple is a gorgeous wee village and Kerry's home is lovely. There were the right amount of people to create a great atmosphere, but not so many that it felt overcrowded or impersonal. You learn loads of interesting and useful information for candle making (and using/buying in terms of quality, etc) and the candles we made were just gorgeous. You also get the chance to blend your own scent for a future candle, which is a lot of fun! The tea and fruit crumble provided were the icing on the cake. Thanks Kerry, I will certainly be recommending this!
Had a great time with Kerry from Can to Candle learning all about the art of making candles. Kerry is very knowledgeable and enthusiast. She also makes a delicious crumble too. Lovely way to spend a Sunday morning. Can’t wait to try out my candle.
I had a lovely morning spent with a bunch of lovely ladies (and one dragged along husband), learning lots about candles, making them, burning them and caring for them. Everything we needed was easily accessible on the table and all details had been thought of including our personalised stickers to put on our finished candles.
Kerry was full of knowledge and was able to answer all our questions. The fresh coffee and homemade berry crumble was the icing on the cake. I would definitely recommend and return to Kerry's courses in the future.
Brilliant morning spent making candles with Kerry, at her charming cottage in Temple. She is full of knowledge on all things candles; we learnt about different types of wax, the proper way to care for (and burn) a candle, had a go at concocting our own 'scents', along with pouring our very own candle.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time there, and as an additional treat, Kerry had made a homemade crumble which we shared at break time, and mingled with other candle makers. Was a wonderful experience, which i'd highly recommend. I'll definitely be booking on to one of the Christmas sessions!
I attended a candle making course at Can Candle owned by Kerrylyn Bell after receiving the voucher from my daughter. I had the most amazing morning in Kerrylyn’s kitchen set up with a huge variety of fragrances and everything needed to make my bespoke candle. The ambiance was fabulous. Kerrylyn has the art of being able to pass on her knowledge in a way that make it fun but I must say I learned so much too. The quality of the products is 1st class and I will be giving vouchers to everyone I now to enjoy the time making their own bespoke candle. I thoroughly enjoyed the homemade crumble too x thank you Kerrylyn for one of the most fabulous Saturday mornings I’ve spent in a long time x
This was great present from my son, giving me time out and a bespoke scented candle at the end of the morning. Kerry oozes with enthusiasm and knowledge in the course of the morning and we discover there is much more to making candles and specifically perfumed ones than you might imagine.
Nurtured by all the lovely scents and delicious crumble it was a great way to start the day.
Had a wonderful morning learning the art of candle making. Kerry is engaging and the course was very interesting, informative and most of all, fun! The homemade crumble was delightful and there was so much attention to detail. Would highly recommend this course and all the lovely products at Can to Candle.
A lovely morning spent in Kerry’s gorgeous kitchen, learning all about candles. Brilliant quirky set up, and amazing hospitality! I would highly recommend Kerry’s course.
Absolutely loved this! All set up beautifully in her cosy kitchen with everything you need,ready to start.Had such a fab time making the candle and my own fragrance. Kerry is lovely and so friendly she explained things really well. If you want to learn the art of candle making this is the place to go. Thankyou Kerry.
Kerry was such a great host, very knowledgeable. Such a lovely atmosphere to learn how to make a candle. Kerry even made a delicious apple crumble.
I found out lost from her workshop and would definitely recommend it.
What a lovely workshop. Kerry was warm, welcoming as well as professional and knowledgable. We were given clear instructions, which made the process feel simple. The setting was beautiful, the atmosphere was cosy and the products were gorgeous. I would highly recommend Can to Candle workshops!
It's been an absolute pleasure to meet Kerry and have the opportunity to do a workshop with her. The beautiful kitchen welcomes you with a fragrant lovely smell of her own candles burning. Wooden logs with essential oils and everything ready on your seat, taking care of the smallest detail with her design labels, care bag, notes of the workshop, pencil, digital scales, etc.
She has lots of knowledge from her own experience that she shares in a really easy way to understand and this is done when you enjoy a nice cuppa or coffee. Once you do the candle and is left to set she also offered an amazing homemade apple crumble. After that, it's time for your own blend that she explains with detail. Finally, she let you know about bad candle burning, how to avoid tunnel in your candles at home, the minimum and maximum length of time to burn a candle at home, etc.
A highly recommend workshop for anyone that likes this craft and I can guarantee that it's so therapeutic. I definitely can't wait to practice my new skills I have learned today.
What a wonderful way to spend a morning! Kerry was so welcoming & hugely informative, who knew candle making would be so interesting & scientific! Her attention to detail was exemplary, everything looked so beautiful when we arrived & obviously smelled amazing. Learnt loads & am now raring to get going on making candles at home. Would highly recommend this course, looking forward to the next one!
What a fun informative course. I feel like a knowledgeable candle guru ready to
Spread the word- don’t forget to trim your wicks.
Would thoroughly recommend this workshop.
Attended the candle making workshop in the lovely village of Temple with my daughter and 2 friends last week.
I thoroughly enjoyed it. Kerrylyn was a warm friendly person and welcomed us and the rest of the nice group into the kitchen of her home, where she taught us her art.
It was fun participating also relaxed and I gained alot of knowledge from it.
I would certainly recommend it to others.
The course was fantastic!
I recommend this to anyone with a love of candles and a lack of knowledge about candles.
I learnt a lot and may now even light my candles instead of just looking at them.
My daughter & I attended this candle making course. We were made to feel very welcome in Kerry’s beautiful homely kitchen. Kerry is incredibly knowledgable, patient & encouraging & we had a fantastic time. We created the most fabulous candles, mixed our own scents & learned lots! W would absolutely recommend this course.
I had a great morning learning all about the art of candle making. A good opportunity to meet new people in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Anyone who is interested in learning a new hobby or perhaps a new business venture should head along to this candle making course.
Our host Kerry made us feel most welcome in her beautiful kitchen workshop.
Had a great morning at Kerry's candle workshop. She is very organised and
friendly and is very knowledgeable on all aspects of candles. I now know how to burn a candle correctly! Would highly recommend to friends. Thank you Kerry.
Had an amazing time on Kerry’s candle making course with great all round company. Kerry’s kitchen workshop was so beautifully laid out. Was very interesting learning some of the science behind candle making and candle burning. I bought the candle kit which was very reasonably priced and I will definitely be making my own candles from now on. 5 stars all round. Thank you Kerry
I thoroughly enjoyed myself this morning at Kerrylyn’s candle making class. Lots of interesting information and detailed steps in how to make the candle and the blend of scent to put in it. I’d say it was value for money and it was a lovely morning meeting really interesting people as well.
Went with my sister in law after we had enjoyed the candles at a fair over the summer. We had a really wonderful time! Kerry was a wonderful host and explained each section brilliantly. The place smelt amazing and was so welcoming and warm. We made our own scented candle, then learnt how to make our own sent to use in a future candle. Everyone on the course was so lovely! We came away so happy and excited about making our own candles in the future. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking for a gift for a crafty friend or a fun morning out with friends. I would also say, having looked into other craft courses, this was really good value for money!
Cannot recommend this course highly enough! The setting was wonderful (Kerry's house) and the set up very welcoming. Kerry is very knowledgeable (who knew I was burning candles wrong for all these years!) and was happy to share her wisdom. The range of scents for adding to your candle was very good and included things like lavender, chocolate, basil, bergamot, lime, mandarin which meant that every taste was catered for. We also mixed up our own scent to add to a future candle. The end product looked very professional and I have now got my Christmas presents sorted - thanks Kerry!
As a seasoned workshop participant I can genuinely recommend this as one of the best, not merely in relation to creativity but also value for money. There’s a real ‘feel good’ vibe and a sense of nurturing and wellbeing. To take home a candle I would be happy to gift to anyone was the icing on the cake. I knew a bit about candle making but learned so much more from Kerrylyn who seems to be a natural teacher. Looking forward to the next one already.
Picture perfect setting, welcoming host. I arrived harassed and exhausted and was immediately calmed by the site of the layout of the room. Farmhouse vibes, wood, rustic yet uber uber chic. The class was friendly informative and inspiring. Entirely satisfying coming away with a candle that has been made from scratch and scented the way I wanted. The whole set up was Instagram heaven but I had phone firmly off and enjoyed the whole process just as was. Fab coffee and cake and Kerry was full of soul and energy. Will definitely recommend and would be lovely for all age groups.
Kerry welcomed us into her lovely kitchen and offered us tea or coffee. The workshop was very well organised and very informative. Kerry is very passionate about her candle making and her enthusiasm was passed on to the group. Everything was explained well and at a good pace. Homemade cake was available with our mid morning coffee. A very enjoyable morning!
Fab workshop, lovely lady, wonderful candles & she makes cake too!
Thanks again Kerry !
Fun, informative, quirky and productive. I totally recommend this workshop whether it’s to learn a new skill, develop an interest further or just to enjoy a different way to spend time with friends/family. Great venue and fantastic teacher. I left with a candle I love and loads of good ideas! Tea and cake was a nice touch. Thanks!
I have never done my own candle before so wasn't sure what to expect. It was super fun and really cosy to make the candle in Kerry's kitchen. Can definitively see myself making more candles by myself in the future. Recommend this workshop!
I attended this course which was held in a truly beautiful surroundings. The course provider was warm and welcoming. She took a real interest in her students as a person and what they wanted to achieve from her course. The Course was well presented, facilitated, educational and factual. I would highly recommend attendance for any "crafty person".
Fabulous morning with Kerry yesterday learning how to pour my own candle. Kerry shared with us her passion for candle making and I learned not only how to make a candle but how to properly burn it and loads about different waxes and scents. It was a very informative session with a lovely group of people. Kerry made us so welcome and her homemade cake was delicious too!!! I would highly recommend 😌
Such a lovely relaxed morning. I can't belive how professionally the candles came out to be, even though we were all beginners! Obviously that's thanks to Kerry who is an excellent teacher :)
I won my candle making class as Kerry had very kindly donated it to a charity auction. I enjoyed every aspect of the morning the class was very relaxed and informal but informative. Kerry paces the class well so you never feel rushed with a welcome coffee and cake break too. Kerry has an eye for detail and styling when you arrive for the class her presentation of the materials etc is so pretty. I will definitely be back.
The workshop was very well organised and the candle making process was clearly explained. Kerry obviously loves all aspects of candle making and she passed on her enthusiasm to the members of the group. The workshop was good fun, well timed and everyone had a beautiful product to take home, I would certainly recommend it.
Thanks to Kerry for a very enjoyable experience.
Really enjoyable and relaxed morning. Learned lots of interesting things and came away with a beautiful candle and my own fragrance. Would definitely recommend!
Myself and 2 friends booked this course and had a fantastic morning. It takes place in Kerry’s gorgeous kitchen and homemade cake and tea/coffee are included. Kerry was really passionate about sharing her knowledge and encouraging us to use our own creativity with our candles and fragrance blends. The small touches like personalised made by stickers for our candles really make this course. Came away with a beautiful candle, a fragrance blend I made myself and a few starter kits so I can keep going at home! Would highly recommend, thanks Kerry!x
What a fantastic couse; set in a beautiful setting.
Kerry was extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of candle making. I thought i knew my candles;wrong!. I am looking forward to creating my own.
I have never been very crafty but always loved the idea of finding one I could relax with. I have definitely found this thanks to Kerry! While there’s a lot more involved in making a candle than I thought Kerry explained it so well I am confident enough to try at home, this will save me a fortune at Christmas for friends and family!
Attended on a Saturday morning with my daughter. Didn't know what to expect. I was surprised at how much you can learn in a few hours. Kerry is very knowledgeable and willing to share her "secrets". I would really recommend this course to anyone looking for something fun to do. The village it is in is very pretty too. I was visiting from Ireland and I was able to return home with a lovely hand-made (by me) souvenir. Scents that Kerry has are so numerous, and fantastic.
I attended this candle making course recently and I can now say that my eyes have been opened to the complexity of candle making! It was very informative and Kerry made it all seem so easy. She was very friendly and we were made to feel very welcome in her home. There were list of little touches that made the experience special, we got personalised labels for our candle creations and everything was very well organised! The candles we made all smelled amazing and there were lots of goodies to buy at the end. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to create their own candles!!
I recently attended Kerry's workshop with my mum and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Kerry was warm, friendly and made us feel very welcome in her lovely home. The course was very informative and we had a fun time making candles and exploring all the scents. I can't wait to burn my candle as well as Kerry's creations. I highly recommend this course and Kerry's candles.
Attended the course on Saturday last in the beautiful village of Temple. Very informal with refreshments and great company. Picked up a lot of tips to be able to make candles safely at home. Kerry was very knowledgeable with many years experience and a very down to earth manor. Would definitely give five stars and would do another workshop in the autumn. Thank you.
This is a lovely way to spend a morning. Kerry is so knowledgeable about everything to do with making candles and explains it in a way that you leave with enough confidence to go home and try it yourself. Would definitely recommend this course to my friends and family!
What a pleasant way to spend a morning! I joined Kerry in her comfortable kitchen and learned plenty about candlemaking, mixing scents and how to burn candles properly. The other course attendees were just lovely and Kerry created a cheery, chatty atmosphere that was both enjoyable and relaxing. I recommend this course to anyone wanting to try something different.
Had a great time . Made to feel very welcome. All instructions explained well. Lovely location and great way to spend a morning.
Had a lovely morning with Kerry and learnt so much! Looking forward to putting what I learnt into practice at home.
Awesome candle making workshop just finished at http://cantocandle.com/product-category/candle-making-workshops/ . Learnt loads and I made my own rhubarb and strawberry candle and my own blend of candle fragrance oil, almond and apple.
Kerry lives in a lovely old stone school house in a beautiful village full of stone cottages.
I had the company of 9 other ladies on the course around a massive country kitchen table. The teacher Kerry is lovely. Coffee on arrival and coffee and cake mid morning was a lovely treat and it was even gluten free cake so I could have it.
My smell sense is so heightened after a morning of smelling so many different lovely candle fragrance oils and the act of making a candle is so relaxing and enjoyable.
Kerry gave us all the information sheet to take away which was really helpful so I could just concentrate and enjoy the workshop without having to take notes.
I would recommend this workshop to anyone.
My husband bought me this as a gift for Christmas, as I love candles and think I have tried so many different makes. Kerrylyn was a great teacher, made me feel very welcome, and the setting in her lovely farmhouse kitchen was devine. She had great knowledge of candle making and a vast array of fragrance and essential oils that can be used in your candle making experience. I would definitely recommend this course and hope to return in October for the Christmas candle making workshop with my daughter.
Lovely house to have a course in and a relaxed atmosphere to go with it. Lots of useful information about the process of making candles and making the best use of them. Lovely tea, coffee and cake to top it all off.
A fabulous course. Kerrylyn was both a wonderful host and great teacher. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to learn a great new hobby.
Spent a lovely morning yesterday at the candle making workshop. Kerry is such a lovely lady, so welcoming - it felt like we had known her for ages and were at a friend's house. The workshop was great fun and extremely informative. Bought a starter pack to make a candle at home and look forward to this being the start of a new skill. Learnt that I had been burning candles incorrectly (who would have thought there was a right and wrong way). I would totally recommend this workshop, we had a wonderful enjoyable morning.
Absolutely fantastic course, Kerrylyn was so good at explaining everything and making the course so enjoyable , I can’t wait to get started making my own candles and already looking forward to the Christmas candle making course 😊
Kerrylyn's candle making workshop this morning was excellent! She is a very personable lady who obviously enjoys meeting people and welcoming them to her home. She was extremely well-prepared, explained everything simply and clearly and also provided everyone with comprehensive instructions to take away. Her passion for what she does is quite contagious and I would have no hesitation in recommending the workshop to anyone who is interested in learning about candle making and spending a highly entertaining morning.
A lovely relaxed morning in Temple learning about candles and fragrances, as well as making our own. Kerry was a delightful host, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The setting was lovely and everything very professional. The homemade cake was delicious too! I would definitely recommend this course - it would make a great gift for friends and family.
Kerry was a lovely host and tutor. I bought myself and a friend this workshop for our Birthday presents and we had an absolute ball. Kerry makes you feel very relaxed; everything is prepared ready for you and it was very professional. Kerry has amazing knowledge and is willing to share. We poured a candle, fragranced it and made our own fragrance. You took away everything you made.
The smell of the oils was divine and it was great fun designing your own fragrance. I am not normally at all crafty or arty and I loved my morning with Kerry. The other guests were fun too and everyone got on really well.
Not only good fun but I learnt a new skill too.
We spent a very chilled morning learning to pour soy wax candles and mixing our own scents. Kerry was very welcoming and knowledgable, and made the couple of hours we spent on her kitchen most enjoyable.. a very enjoyable mother & daughter bonding experience!
This course was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning and learn something new. Course sizes were small and very relaxed around the kitchen table. Kerry was very knowledgeable about all things to do with candles and she was full of enthusiasm. The candle I made smells delicious and I'm looking forward to using it as well as the fragrance oil we blended ourselves. Would highly recommend!
I had a wonderful morning in Kerry’s beautiful kitchen learning the basics on pouring soy wax candles. She was very knowledgeable and welcoming, we even got coffee and lovely home made cake. I went alone and she created an atmosphere that made it feel like I had gone with friends.
The workshop was very enjoyable as well as being relaxing . My daughter and I came away with 2 lovely candles at the end , Kerry was very friendly and made a delicious cake for us to eat while we made our candles . I would definitely recommend .
A lovely way to spend a Saturday morning, starting with a delicious cup of coffee in Kerry's beautiful country kitchen. I didn't know that there was so much involved in making a good candle and I'll be looking suspiciously at the very cheap ones from now on! Kerry had everything prepared, and has a friendly, relaxing manner that makes one feel at ease immediately. She explained everything involved in making a candle, in terms that were easy to understand. Choosing the fragrance for my own candle was fun, and later on we mixed our own fragrances too. The instructions on how to burn a candle properly were very illuminating and I'm looking forward to burning my own now it has cured for a week. A highly enjoyable workshop (with cake and coffee halfway through - Kerry is also an excellent baker!).
The course was an excellent blend of fun and learning. Kerry is very knowledgeable and is able to communicate that knowledge in a lively and enjoyable way. The setting, in Kerry's old world kitchen, is so relaxing and welcoming. I found the Saturday morning course just perfect. There were six participants and Kerry's relaxed style soon breaks the ice and has everyone talking and laughing. The cake and coffee was delicious. I have come away with information about suppliers and candle making as well as with the confidence that I will make candles at home for gifts. I would highly recommend this workshop even if you were going along on your own.
Had a fab time at workshop on Saturday. Very relaxed friendly and informative. Would definitely recommend this workshop.
What an excellent way to spend a Saturday morning! Kerry is an excellent teacher and is very knowledgeable about candle making. We made our own candles after picking from some amazing fragrances. Whilst waiting for our candles to set we mixed our own scent from Kerry’s wide selection after learning about the scents, different types of wax and how to burn candles - yes there are right and wrong ways!! It was great to learn a new technique and produce our very own candles- can’t wait to burn it!
We had a wonderful time at Kerry’s candle making workshop! The workshop takes place in a beautiful, country kitchen where Kerry teaches many great tips and methods for making lovely candles. We learned about different frangrances before creating our own unique frangrance. I’ve already used mine in an oil burner and love it! I would definitely recommend this workshop for people looking for a creative experience with friends or anyone with an interest in learning about starting a business in candle making. The cake and tea also went down very well :) thanks for a brilliant morning!
Had so much fun today with Kerry at Can to Candle’s workshop. Learnt loads, Kerry is very knowledgeable, really enthusiastic and happy to share her secrets. Can’t wait to get started with my new hobby.
We had a lovely time at the candle making workshop and made most welcome by Kerry. Learned everything we needed to know about making our own candles. I will be attempting my first one as soon as I get home!
Fantastic morning spent learning all about making candles. The workshop was informative and friendly, the materials very professionally presented - so excited with my hand poured by Susan label. Loved loved loved it!
A beautifully presented and well run workshop. Very insightful. Easily the best workshop I’ve attended. I would 100% recommend this candle making experience!!
I booked the candle making workshop for my sister's hen party and it really was the perfect activity! As we were a large group (14) Kerry had organised the class in the village hall which was the ideal setting - the set up was beautiful. The class was just the right amount of practical candle making, interesting info and lots of laughs. Kerry was a wonderful host! She provided tea and cake and even some bubbles at the end of the workshop. We all had a brilliant morning and my sister loved it. I would definitely recommend this as the perfect start to a hen party - what a great day!
Had a really relaxing and informative workshop with Kelly. Met some lovely people and learned a lot about candles. It has even inspired me to try it myself . I would thoroughly recommend the experience.
Received this as a Christmas voucher from my husband, and one of the best presents he has bought me. Such a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning, with great company, coffee, cake and learning how to make candles. Really well organised, friendly and have learned everything I need to know about making candles. This included all the do's and don'ts, where to find all the products you need and notes to take away. I am inspired and have already started on the road to making my own candles .
The workshop was both fun and interesting- one very useful tip was learning how to burn a candle correctly. I had no idea I’d been doing it wrongly!
Great workshop and Kerry was a lovely host/teacher. Everything was very well organised, laid out and relaxed and answered all our questions throughout. I came away knowing great tips/advice like how to burn a candle properly and different types of wax. There was a great selection of fragrances to choose from and I Iove my candle and can't wait to burn it next week.
I’ve just spent the morning in Kerry’s kitchen (Can to Candles) making my very own candle. It was a really lovely relaxed atmosphere and I met some lovely people. Kerry was really knowledgable and helpful during the workshop and also provided us with candle making notes to take away. I would totally recommend this workshop and look forward to hearing about new ones planned. I feel so inspired to make my own now!
Well I never realised there was so much to candles. Kerry not only explained the science behind different waxes and fragrances she told us how to get the best out of any candle. We all produced our own candle, with the fragrance of our choice and were able to take it away after the session.
The workshop ( Kerry's kitchen) had just been featured in 'Period Living' and was a joy to be in. Kerry made sure we were all happily fed with her home made cake and had plenty of tea/coffee on hand.
So pleased to come away with a perfect scented candle in a glass! Delicious cake and coffee in Kerry's lovely kitchen, and lots of information on how to make, and look after your candle. If you do it right, it will last for 50 hours! Impatient, as I have to wait a week before using it! As well as Kerry's own candles and related products, there are great starter kits available to buy and take home, all at special student prices!
Candle Making - What a lovely start to a Sunday morning. The workshop was relaxed, informative and fun. Kerry's enthusiasm for candle making really shines through and she eagerly passes on her wealth of knowledge to everyone. You leave the workshop with some great tips on how to get the most out of your candles by burning them in the correct way - no more wasted candles!! You choose your own fragrance oil and make your very own candle to take home. The end result is a beautifully presented natural soy wax candle in a glass container - very professional!!
Kerry is very engaging and made us all feel at home from start to finish. We also enjoyed coffee and homemade cake which was delicious.
I would highly recommend this workshop and I am really looking forward to the next one.
I absolutely loved Kerry’s workshop. Echo the comments above, lovely company, surroundings coffee and cake as well as lots of new information about candles. My personal favourite info was on how to burn a candle properly and how to stop wasting candles that haven’t fully burnt down at home...been doing this for years!! Opportunity to buy a candle making kit to take home - ideal!
Loved this workshop. Fun, friendly, relaxed environment and Kerry is a great host and teacher. There was a good range of scents to choose from and the finished candles looked very professional and smelt amazing. Also tea/coffee and home baking provided which was lovely. I would highly recommend it.
I attended one of kerrylyns workshops today and would highly recommend this beautiful sunday morning in her delightful kitchen with home made cake , so many laughs and her knowledge on candles is amazing . Best mother daughter day in a long time
A lovely way to spend a morning! The workshop in Kerryann’s cosy kitchen was so well prepared and organised, very informative, relaxed and fun! And the candles we made looked so professional- I can’t wait to use it. Great choice of scents - something for everyone. The homemade cake was pretty special too!!!
I would recommend this course to anyone and would happily return myself for this or any other workshops Kerryann offers!
Book now! It's such a lovely day.
The whole event was wonderful, from a cosy farmhouse style kitchen, which you will want to move into, the information sharing and assistance offered to ensure you have an amazing day,it's all considered. I arrived looking for a bit of creative knowledge and fun, wanting to try something new and escape the small people for a morning. I left feeling inspired, creative and relaxed. I absolutely recommend this course. Kerry shared all her knowledge, even secret tips which must have taken years to learn, she makes you feel like an old friend after 5 minutes. It was such a lovely day. I hope you have as much fun as I did x
What a wonderful way to spend a sunny Sunday morning!! Lovely cosy and friendly atmosphere in Kerry's beautiful kitchen. Kerry taught us everything we need to know about candles including making our own and burning them too. The candle we took home is delightful!! Would highly recommend this course to others! Thanks again for having us, Kerry x
Great way to spend a Sunday morning learning all about candles and making your own! Kerry created a lovely relaxed atmosphere where you could ask questions as you went along and had some funny anecdotes about all the dos and don't of candle making! Would highly recommend this to others! Thank you.
Our candle making class was a wonderful way to spend a Monday morning and I love my candle and wax melts! Can't wait to start purchasing Christmas gifts from Kerrylyn as the range is beautiful!

I loved every bit of it and thoroughly enjoyed making my own candle and pine cone firefighters. Meet some lovely people on the course too.
Thank you for a great day.
Absolutely loved Kerry's soy wax candle making course and can thoroughly recommend it to others. The location is idyllic - picture perfect stone cottages in a quiet rural village - and Kerry has a lovely warm welcoming manner. The workshop itself was well paced, hands on, well organised (all equipment set out at each table place) and interactive. Really interesting and lots of fun. Go with a friend, escape the usual Saturday morning routine and enjoy.
What a lovely way to spend a few hours. Thoroughly enjoyed learning the art of candle making and the science behind it and enjoying making my own. Kerry welcomes you in to the heart of her home and is very passionate about what she does.
If you are looking to get in to candle making or would just like to spend a few hours doing something for yourself I would absolutely recommend this. Plus - you get some homemade cake and a lovely candle to take home!
This course is excellent and I would definitely recommend whether you are looking for a morning of fun or to learn a new skill!
My mum and I had a wonderful Saturday morning...the workshop was so informative, yet full of fun and the home baking was an added bonus and not to mention the warm delivery!

Delicious hot chocolate and home made cake were an unexpected bonus! I would definitely recommend the workshop - enjoyable and informative. Thankyou Elspeth
Shannon and I were visiting Edinburgh for the weekend from Kent and fancied doing something different, so we booked a candle making workshop, well we was not disappointed, we had a great time, learnt loads about the different candles and wicks, but most of all loved how welcoming Kerry was into her wonderful home, as entering she made us feel like one of the family, Would highly recommend if anyone wants to have a go at candle making, then Kerry is the one. Thank you so much for making part of our weekend a very enjoyable one.
I had such a lovely morning at Kerry's candle making workshop. The atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly with lots of laughs but we also all learnt a great deal as Kerry's knowledge is second to none. I was so impressed by the way she ran the workshop ensuring that we all came away having made our own bespoke candle and scented fire lighters. Delicious hot chocolate and home made cake were an unexpected bonus! We'll definitely be back and I would recommend the workshop as a fantastic and fun activity for all!
What a totally lovely morning I had at Kerry's candle making workshop yesterday. We were greeted with the most delicious hot chocolate with a lovely hint of orange, had a lovely chat and then got stuck into all this soy wax, wicks, scents and trimming. Once we have our candles blended and cooling out came coffee and yummy home made cake. It was such a soothing and relaxing way to spend a morning with friends. We then make scented fire lighters. Kerry's workshop was a total treat and her range of candles is fab. We'll be back again no doubt.
What a great morning I had attending Kerry's workshop in the beautiful village of Temple learning the art of candle making! Kerry is lovely and so knowledgable about every aspect of candle making and candle care and she has inspired me to start making my own soy candles at home. She has a beautiful range of her own candles available to buy with the most amazing scents. Oh, and the home made cake and coffee was a real treat! I highly recommend Kerry's workshop to anyone who loves candles or as a gift voucher for creatives types.
Kerrylyn has an amazing gift - not only informative in her chosen craft but as a hostess she was warm and welcoming. Her knowledge and attention to detail could not be faulted and I will be delighted to join her in 2018 for her scent blending workshop. I've now lit my candle from the class after letting it cure and I'm amazed at the result.
Lovely way to spend a morning. X
I went to Kerrylyn's Can to Candle workshop this morning ,with a group of friends which I would recommend as I learned and laughed so much . I will most definitely choose my candles with greater care and to "trim my wick "frequently . I'm not naturally creative but I learned so much about types of wax and oils and how to burn a candle effectively and I loved the whole experience of making my own candle to bring home. I bought another starter pack and several unique gifts and would highly recommend this course !!!!
What a fabulous morning, Kerry was so friendly and knowledgeable about all things "candles", the whole set up was beautifully done. Came away with a gorgeous candle to use at Christmas and some lovely scented firelighters. Really recommend the course :-)
I spent a wonderful 3 hours learning all about candle making with Kerrylyn. Workshop is held in her wonderful kitchen around a fantastic country table. So homely, warm and friendly. She has a natural gift to make you feel relaxed in her home. Really fun activity to bring out your creative side, made me feel like a young girl at school again doing arts and crafts. Great to learn all the tricks of the candle making which Kerrylyn has learnt through trial and error over the years. Highly recommend this workshop, I will definitely be back to attend another one and in the meantime I will be practising my candle making skills !!
Thanks again Kerrylyn for a wonderful workshop !
Kerry was a great host. She made everyone feel so welcome. she was very informative about her technique in making the candles. I would certainly recommend anyone thinking of taking a candle making course, to book one of Kerry's classes. It was truly a great experience.
What a great workshop. A relaxing morning chatting whilst making a candle and firelighters. Kerry makes you feel at home as soon as you step into her home. The hot chocolate and cake were fantastic!
I left with my beautiful candle and box of firelighters that I had made and kits to make some candles at home.
Do the workshop you will not regret it! I will go back to do another workshop in the new year!
What a great workshop and host. Kerry was nothing but fabulous and knowledgeable, I came home full of ideas and newly learnt knowledge about candles and candle making. I couldn't fault the class at all as she had all the details perfect down to personalised name tags at the seats and the seriously good cake!
Can't wait for the scent blending class next year!
I had such a fantastic time yesterday on the candle making workshop. I found it very informative and fun and I definitely have developed a new interest in candle making. Thank you Kerry for such a warm welcome and a wonderful, interesting and fun morning. I can’t wait for the diffuser and scent blending workshop next year!
I had a lovely morning a few weeks ago at Kerry's candle making course, so informative very friendly and relaxed, we even had lovely coffee and cake!! Would highly recommend this course.
Had a truly wonderful time at Kerry's candle making workshop. I bought this gift as a present for Mum and both thoroughly enjoyed it! Such a lovely welcoming space, there was a great mix of other guests there - some in groups, some alone.
Learned so much about candles and the dos and don'ts - and have certainly picked up the bug for making homemade gifts.
Will be back to bring new friends to share the experience :)
I had a fabulous morning earlier this week with Kerry at Can to Candle learning all about making soy candles and I met some other lovely ladies there too. I can thoroughly recommend Kerry's candle workshop (and the homemade hot chocolate and cake too!). I'm itching to get started on some Christmas gifts.
Had a lovely morning on this workshop. Learnt lots about candles and scents and got lovely coffee and cake to boot too!
I had a wonderful morning this morning with Kerry at her candle making course in her beautiful home. Kerry is a wonderful host and it was clear we all had a great time. She shared a lot of her expertise and tips and we came away with the lovely scented candle and Christmas scented pine cone fire lighters we made. We also indulged in delicious hot chocolate and tea and cake. Such a lovely way to spend a morning! I would recommend this course to anyone and I suspect all the folk there this morning will be back when she starts her diffuser course! Thank you Kerry.
Wow what a lovely morning I had today with Kerry at her workshop and had such fun making my own candle and pine-cone firelighters. I learnt lots of new information about the process of not only making candles but tips on the best way to burn them.
I'd highly recommend if you get the opportunity to book either yourself in or get a group of friends together for a friendly and welcoming time with a fabulous host.
I had such a lovely morning at Kerry's workshop today and learned so much about candles from wax, fragrance, how to burn them properly and most importantly how to make my own! Kerry created a fun and relaxed atmosphere and made some delicious cake too - I'd highly recommend this workshop!
Had a lovely morning making candles with Kerry. I learnt a lot about how to make the most of burning a candle to its full potential, and how to spot the good ones! Kerry also made a cake that catered for my dairy free needs which was much appreciated and delicious. Definitely recommend this workshop. Thank you!
Had a Lovely Morning in Temple on the Candle making workshop. Kerry made me welcome from the start (emails) and gave a lovely warm welcome as I entered her home then a 'Grand' cup of tea. Kerry is very informative about candle making and even told us about her 'mishaps' in the beginning of her journey. I was able to mingle with others who were there and choose the scent I wanted for my own candle from her amazing collection of scents. After blending the scent and wax together and pouring this in to the tin we had a a slice of yummy cake and another cup of tea.
I had a lovely morning and would highly recommend this course to anyone. I was even able to buy a starter kit (or two) and some fragrances to make some more candles.
Kerry, Thank You and look forward to seeing you again for the next one!
This is the first course I've been on after a very long term illness. Kerry made me feel very welcome and relaxed. She took into account that I'm hard of hearing and placed me closest to her. She is a wonderful teacher and host. Although I knew some of the information about making candles, Kerry provided so much more during this course. She also gave me the confidence to try to make candles by myself which is a big step for me. She has instilled a passion within me to go and produce candles and that there will be mistakes made but that's ok, all part of the learning. For the first time in many years I feel excited and I can't wait to start poring my own candles in the Highlands. Kerry, you're a wonderful lady and I can't thank you enough x xx
What a great way to spend a Saturday morning! Kerry is a natural host; warm, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about her craft.
Kerry's beautiful home was the perfect location for the workshop and she made us all feel so welcome even providing the most delicious homemade scones and fresh coffee.
I learnt so much about candles that I never knew before. The course made me realise that they are require a lot more care than perhaps most of us give them.
It was great to share the morning with a lovely bunch of people and really interesting to see all the different amazing5 scents everyone chose for their very own hand poured candle. I can't wait to light mine - currently following the candle making rules and letting it 'cure' for seven days!
I would wholeheartedly recommend this course and wish Kerry every success.
Enjoyed a lovely morning at Kerrilyn's candle making workshop on 21st August 2017. Very informative with lots to learn, but in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Can't wait to light my candle! Would highly recommend this workshop. Thank you Kerrilyn.
Had a lovely morning at Kelly's home. Learning all about candle making. There was a lot more to it than I expected. Learning all about the wax and how to scent it ,as well as how to burn a candle the right way, Never knew there was so much science behind it! Don't let that put you off , everything is explained in a very relaxed atmosphere, Very open and friendly. Plus the home baking is a bonus. Any one looking to learn candle making, This is a great place to start.
Thanks Kelly for a lovely morning
Had a lovely morning at Kerry's candle making workshop. Very informative course. I was amazed how much thought and science goes into the art of candle making! Fab friendly atmosphere in Kerry's beautiful home. We had delicious scones and jam with tea which was also a delight. Can't wait for my next week. The only disappointment (in a very tongue in cheek way!) is having to wait a week before burning my delicious smelling candle! I would recommend this course to anyone and will definitely be doing so!
Really interesting Workshop. Kelly is very knowledgable, entertaining and keen to share her enthusiasm for beautiful candles.
Would definitely recommend this course. Kelly, the scones were delicious and Fireside is my fragrance!!
This was a birthday present from my Mum that we did together. Never thought learning about candles could be so much fun and that there was a right way to burn them. Lovely morning with a fantastic host in Kerry and a great group. Not to mention the amazing homemade lemon drizzle cake. Would thoroughly recommend the workshop. Thank you Kerry!
Most enjoyable experience. More to candle making than I would have guessed. Learned about 'melts'. Kerry taught us in a very friendly and relaxed manner. Met lots of nice people. Had most amazing gluten free lemon cake with my coffee. Lots of lovely products to buy. Highly recommend this experience.
A great course! High quality candles are the end result of a fun and informative class! I absolutely cannot wait to use my new goodies!
A really interesting and enjoyable workshop. Really enjoyed my morning and Kerry a lovely lady and very easy to get along with. Nice to meet other participants as well. Would thoroughly recommend it to everyone
This is a wonderful workshop to attend. Had a truly lovely time. Kerry is a lovely host and teacher.
Made our own candle which we got to take home and all the information needed to make our own candles at home, either for a hobby or a new business adventure.
I would highly recommend this workshop. Also the homemade scones with jam and cream are to die for.
Fantastic way to spend a morning, learning a new skill in a relaxed and friendly space, meeting new people and learning that there is much more to candle making than you think!! Bring home your own candle and the chance to buy a kit to make candles at home and lots of other fab products. The new melts are genius!!
Had a fantastic day candle making with Kerry. I went on my own and met 5 lovely ladies. The atmosphere was relaxed and Kerry couldn't of been more informative! Who knew candle making was such a science. Can't wait until my candle has cured to get it lit, it smells AMAZING!
Just had a lovely morning with Kerry and other fellow candle making enthusiasts. Very informative with loads of info as Kerry is an excellent tutor. After making our own candle there was a choice of home baking together with some of Kerry's other products to purchase.
I had no idea what to expect when I was given a voucher for this workshop for mothers day. It turned out to be a wonderful experience. We received a warm welcome and refreshments from our host before entering the realms of candlemaking. I could never have anticipated how much was involved. The information was delivered in a relaxed atmosphere with freely flowing questions from the group. Kerry provided all the answers to all the questions you have about the candles you buy that maybe don’t burn the way you expect! We all got to choose our scent and make our own candle. and came away with a handout with all the information we needed to do it all ourselves at home. We were treated to lovely home made scones (fresh out the oven) mid morning which we all enjoyed and I got to meet some lovely people.
Great fun, would highly recomend
This is a brilliant workshop and Kerry is a fab teacher. It was a lovely atmosphere and Kerry's home is a beautiful and relaxing setting to be in. Really enjoyed the day and came away with a great insight into the world of candle making as well as my own lovely candle. Would love to do again, and highly recommend. The small group setting works really well and you can ask as many questions as you like. Great day :)
This was a great workshop. Kerry was very informative about candle making telling us about her personal experience. Kerry is a really friendly host. When making the candles Kerry had a really lovely selection of fragrances to choose from. I really had a great time and can't wait to burn my candle! Would highly recommend this workshop.
A fantastic morning was had by all. Very relaxing, informative and great fun! Can't wait to burn my candle and get some scents to start making my own. Would highly recommend.
Lovely way to spend a morning - the whole workshop was very well organised, Kerry makes you feel very welcome in her home and is a great teacher! Small group, very relaxed atmosphere with plenty of opportunity to ask questions and find out all about candle making while making your own to take home. Really enjoyed it and will definitely recommend to others!
Who knew there was so much to candle making?! An excellent and very informative course about making soy wax candles. Kerry was very knowledgeable about her craft and made us feel welcome in her home, providing us with gorgeous refreshments during the course. We came away having made our own fragranced candle - a lovely reminder of a morning well spent. An excellent Mother' s day gift!!
Totally loved Kerry's candle making workshop.. really good fun and loved the finished article. Also really enjoyed meeting all the people at the workshop a great combination of different characters were doing the course. Temple is a lovely place and kerrys kitchen is the perfect location- amazing scones too - highly recommended!!
Had a wonderful morning, with a lovely group of girls, discovering the science behind candles and candle making. Kerry was very informative and talked us through how she began to make candles and the simple things you can use around the home to make them. We then each picked a scent and made our own candle. This workshop was well worth the money and highly recommended.
Going to this workshop with my two grown-up daughters was such fun. Kerry is such a delightful, friendly and informative person and you couldn't fail to feel at home in her beautiful house. I would highly recommend attending this workshop!
What a fabulous way to spend a morning, in beautiful surroundings and amazing fragrances. Kerry is so warm and inviting, it was truly a joy to be on her course.
The perfect Way to spend a Saturday morning, Kerry is warm and friendly from The moment she opens the door to you into her beautiful home. I certainly learnt a lot and came away feeling really positive.
Kerry provides an excellent morning learning how to make candles. She is lovely, friendly and answered everyone's questions. I left with a beautiful candle and the confidence to make my own at home. We also had lovely home made scones and a cuppa what more could you want from a Saturday morning! I would highly recommend, I went by myself but it would be great to go with friends as well.
A fantastic workshop full of information and fun! Kerry explained clearly the different types of waxes, oils and of course gave us the chance to make our own "can to candle" product. I took my teenage daughter and we both had a lot of fun, hopefully a new hobby we can both share! Kerry was a first class teacher (and her scones were yummy too!)
What a fabulous way to spend a morning; surrounded by candles, fragrances and good company. Kerry generously shares her knowledge, experiences and expertise as a candlemaker in the relaxing atmosphere of her beautiful kitchen. A warm welcome awaits anyone who is interested in learning the process of candle-making and by making one yourself to take away, you get to make the experience last that little while (actually quite a long while as you will be using soy wax to make your candles!) longer. I can highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking to start a new hobby or who is just looking for a little bit of quality "me" time. Thank you Kerry for a great morning and I look forward to seeing your business go from strength to strength. x
Really interesting and enjoyable morning! I loved my final product, so excited to take my candle home....
Had a super morning with Kerry. What a fabulous Christmas present from my lovely friend Anna. I had no idea what to expect and it was wonderful. Kerry really knows her stuff is super friendly and it was a pure pleasure to learn from her. The group were lovely. Such a lovely way to spend a morning. I have already recommended it to some friends.
Had a great morning at Kerry's workshop, loved pouring my own candle and making pine cone firelighters. Interesting session that was relaxed and very friendly, scones were a bonus. Also learned lots about the 'science' of candle burning
Wonderful course! A really fun, informative and relaxing way to spend a Saturday morning. Kerry was a super teacher and would definitely recommend!!!
What a fab course and an even wonderful teacher. Learnt so much about the candle world, in lovely surroundings and a very relaxed and friendly environment. Highly recommended
I had a fantastic time at the course. Kerry's passion for candles shines through. I learnt so much about candles, it's not just about striking a match
Would thoroughly recommend this course I came alone but met some wonderful new people and left with my own candle which I am very proud of
A natural host and story teller,Kerry makes you feel welcome from start to finish.Her genuine enthusiasm for her products shines through as she takes you through the process of making soy wax candles and I was amazed at how much she managed to fit in, in a fairly short period of time. Kerry is very generous in sharing her knowledge and giving lots of hints and tips for candle making success.
The workshop was conducted in a really relaxed but extremely professional manner , the group size was just right and it was lovely to meet up with and have a wee blether with new people over candle wax and home made scones - not at the same time of course!
Great value for money and a fantastic feeling leaving with a beautiful fragranced candle made by ME !
Thank you Kerry.
Had a great Saturday morning with Kerry we learnt how to make candles and the way you should burn them .I thought you lit them and that was it but it's not.Would recommend it.
We had a great morning at the course. Came away confident in making more at home. I thought it was really good value for money in a lovely kitchen! Kerry was great at giving us instructions and trying to keep us lot under control which she managed well! Looking forward to the next one.
This Candlemaking workshop is really fun and interesting. Kerry is a delightful host and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. I came all the way from London to do this Course and I can't recommend it enough. I always have to buy around thirty gifts at Christmas so by doing this course I will save myself a lot of money as the candles not only smell devine but look very professional.
Had a wonderful morning at Temple on the candle making workshop! Kerry was very knowledgable about soy wax candle making. We learnt so much about technique,the do's and dont's of candle making and even some basic skills about how to burn a candle! Kerry is such a natural at bringing people together, whilst teaching us the basic skills of candle making. Mid morning while waiting for the candles to set we had coffee and homemade scones and got to know the other people at the workshop.
I had a fun morning, a few laughs and brought a candle home and a starter pack to make another one!
I would highly recommend this workshop!
