About the Course

This course will offer a brief introduction to the history of candle-making, an understanding of the types of waxes available and their advantages and disadvantages, size and types of candle wick are also important, burn times, etc.

We will then move on to the equipment necessary for both the hobbyist and those who are interested in a business opportunity.

Candle-making is a craft as old as civilization itself. You will have an opportunity to make your own candles - from simple tea lights to pillar candles and scented jar candles - that you can take home with you.

All the techniques will be explained and demonstrated, and common mistakes ironed out. We will cover a range of ideas on building your own candle range for profit - covering labelling, branding and selling ideas.

Our objective is to offer a fun and informative course with small classes; a maximum of 7 people. Times are flexible but usually the course runs from approximately 9am until 1pm.

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.
