Candle Making Workshop with Bilsington Priory Afternoon Tea

Candle making equipment

About the Course

Designed to help you escape day to day life for a few hours our hands on course offers you the opportunity to learn a new skill and ignite your creativity in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

The course will last for approximately 5 hours and be held in the conservatory of the Edwardian Manor at Bilsington Priory in Ashford. A stunning setting overlooking the 13th century Priory with fields as far as the eye can see.

Taking you through the day will be Karen, founder of The Aromatic Candle Co. You will be given an overview of the different types of waxes and wicks that are available before making your own container candles and a selection of aromatic wax tablets with botanicals. Personalise your own beautiful handmade products by choosing from a wide range of high quality fragrances from one of the best suppliers in the UK. While your creations are left to set you will enjoy a scrumptious homemade afternoon tea from the Priory team. To round the day off you will be advised about candle care and candle safety before heading home with your products, worth over £50.

No experience is necessary as you will be guided through each of the steps.

In line with the new Government guidelines class sizes will now be limited to a maximum of 4 people. This will also allow for individual attention.

Come and learn how to make gifts for family and friends or if you have a wedding coming up you may like to make your own favours. Whether it’s for fun or to celebrate a birthday or a hen do, all enquiries are welcome and private courses are available.
