This workshop was incredible! Charlie is a fantastic host, and it was a friendly and fun time all round!
I actually booked as a lone person rather than as a pair or group booking, and despite my anxieties, it was absolutely amazing!
After entering the studio and becoming acquainted, we all donned our aprons, and Charlie clearly explained exactly what we would be doing and or end goal. She was very attentive to any questions within the group, and it was a lovely and relaxing experience.
We all got to choose our desired glass or teacup/saucer, and we chose our own scents and colours (or none at all if we wanted!)
Everything was wonderfully explained, and Charlie guided us through the entire process, while still allowing us creative freedom!
At the end, we were all supplied with an easy to follow instruction sheet for making our own candles at home, and we were able to note down our email address where Charlie then sent information on where to find the ingredients.
I was actually looking at learning how to make my own candles to sell and gift, and I have come away from this workshop with all the basics and extra knowledge too! It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, and I can’t wait to get creating!!
Highly recommend, for anyone looking to learn this craft, or even just for anyone wanting a little bit of fun!

Boutique and bespoke we had great fun with Charlie. She is charming and knowledgable and we couldn’t have asked for more. Such a fun few hours and would 100% recommend it to anyone. We loved our candles and I look forward to making more for presents in the future. Massive thank you to Charlie.

Really lovely experience. Arrived at the house was welcomed warmly by Charlie. She took us through the house before coming into a large garden with the studio located at the back. After having a glass of bubbly and meeting the other guests, Charlie began to explain the candle making process and we moved into the studio which was very clean and modern. Charlie was very informative and really guided us through the process and answered any questions we had. We got to pick the vessel for our candle as well as our own scents out of about 50 different ones. We also got to colour our candles with dye and Charlie let us get a little creative at this point, mixing different dyes during the cooling period to create a marbling effect. My partner also placed some seashells into the candle which she had brought along. While we waited for the candles to cool we have tea and biscuits and a chat. It was a great way to spend an afternoon and would recommend to anyone and everyone!

Charlie is lovely and made this an exceptional experience: easy to follow instructions, good quality materials, beautiful bag with wrapping paper to take your candle home, tea/snacks, etc. The two hours flew by so fast.

Brilliant course. I have some experience with candle making but was able to fire loads of questions at Charlie who was very informative. Very personal and would highly recommend!

I booked this course for a birthday present for my Grandmother, and we absolutely loved it! We ended up being the only 2 which made it so personal. Charlie was so lovely and kind and really made our day special. We also got to enjoy a lovely piece of cake made by her sister! We can't thank Charlie enough! :)

I spent a delightful afternoon at the Flamingo house in Hove learning how to create a gorgeous fragranced soya wax candle. The setting for the course was a charming studio in the garden where we were taught by Charlie. WE enjoyed a yummy home baked cake and a glass of bubbly. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone and I look forward to making my own candles to give to friends now that I know how to! Thank-you so much

I thoroughly enjoyed this candle making workshop and would highly recommend it. Charlie is really lovely, she put me at ease straight away and explained things so well. The atmosphere was very relaxed and there was a great selection of candle containers and essential oils to choose from. The workshop was very hands on which was great and Charlie even provided me with a step by step guide of how to make the candles for future reference. The candles I made are beautiful and smell absolutely divine :) Definitely a new skill that I am excited to develop and utilise.
Thank you Charlie!
