I had a thoroughly enjoyable day with Sue and John on their Candle and Diffuser course. Their knowledge and guidance is truly excellent. They shared their wealth of experience and professionalism in such a relaxed way the day just flew. I have returned home with a lovely selection of candles and a diffuser. Am now looking to go back and trying my hand at something else. Thank you Sue and John for such a great day 😊

John and Sue made me very welcome, and it was a very interesting course, in a handy location (the workshop smelt wonderful too!). John gave of lots of information but didn't overhwelm with too much. There was a variety of candles to make and I particularly loved the diffuser part of the course. I left with all the candles I had made and also with lots of goodies to make my own candles for presents and diffusers to use in my B&B rooms. A very enjoyable day, thanks to you both!

John and Sue were very welcoming their course was extremely informative. The course covered all aspects of candle making,
creating your own candles and diffuser. Lovely location, would thoroughly recommend for anyone who is interested in candle making. Will definitely return for the soap making course early next year.
