“You don’t have to be great to start but you have to start to be great” (Zig Ziglar)
My workshops aren't to fast-track you, becoming a chandler takes time and experience but what I can do is help you build your brand, with guidance and the experience I already have, eliminating a lot of the mistakes made in the early days, that cost too much time and money. We will explore the many different types of wax and the difference between using essential oils v fragrance oils, we will make candles, we will look at safety and testing, compliance and marketing, building the foundations and so much more.
I have a background in Technical Training, my workshops will give you so much information but in a way that everyone can understand.
You will leave with motivation, confidence and eagerness to succeed in turning candle making into a successful business.
Maybe you already have your business but are in a rut, or you need help to take it to the next level. Then my workshops are for you too.

Your Idea, Your Niche, Your Hopes and Desires
Wax, Wicks, Containers, Equipment, Suppliers

I bought this as a gift for my sister-in-law. We had a lovely time at Jane’s Jubilee Candle Making Class, it was really interesting to understand more about the process that’s involved in candle making. Jane certainly knows her stuff and provided us all with a lovely afternoon tea. Would definitely recommend as a gift or if you fancy learning more about candle making yourself.
Response from The Candle Coach:Thank you Emma for your review, It's so lovely to know that people enjoy the workshops.
My sister and I attended wirh our mum as a mothers day treat......and it was a great choice. We made the Jubilee Candles.
Jane made us feel so welcome and she is a great tutor.....she talked us through the process and pitched it just right.....very professional.
The scents are wonderful too.
Jane made our afternoon tea a joy too....even catered for gluten free and dairy free......it was a real treat!
We ate too much, laughed, learned, enjoyed ourselves and created something lovely. A perfect afternoon out.
Response from The Candle Coach:Thank you Sarah for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to have you all on the workshop.
I've been pottering about trying to get my candles to a place where I feel proud of them, feel confident in selling them, and to be honest I wasnt. I've went through so many you tube videos and books etc and all were conflicting and different to the other leaving me bewildered and lost and ready to give up. I was juggling over 70 different scents and getting nothing but confusion.
Just per chance I ordered a centreing tool and with it came a little leaflet about Jane and I decided to have a look.
Within a week I could see clearer. I was trying to do too much and perfecting nothing so I took the course and it is so well laid out from the basics to actually getting the business off the ground. How to target,sell, package, label and all the legalities. The Facebook page is also invaluable. Im so glad I joined. Now I feel focused and determined to stick to a smaller amount of scents but to be confident in my product. I really believe I'm going to get there this time. Highly recommend
Response from The Candle Coach:Thank you Brenda for your kind words. I'm so pleased the course has been helpful to you and I am looking forward to our Power Hour soon.
I can’t recommend this course enough…..Jane is so lovely and has so much knowledge, and you cover everything you need to know about candle making and everything you need to know regarding the business side. I had such a lovely day and came away even more excited to start my business, as the worries I had about certain aspects were put to rest. Thank you Jane for such a lovely experience, and passing on all your knowledge.
Thank you for such a lovely day. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I didn't realise that there was so much to know about candle making. You explained every detail/step-by-step of how to achieve a good result. My two 9-year-old grandchildren loved smelling them and saying which they liked best. I'm looking forward to using my 6 candles in the near future.
Thank you again. Diana.
Absolutely great course. Jane is a great teacher who explain you step by step how to prepare a good quality candle. Her knowledge is huge and she respond for any queries.
I felt very comfortable on whole session with Jane and We spent time in very nice atmosfere. Everything was good planned. Now I feel confident and well prepared for any new experience with candle making. I will be definitely in touch with Jane.
After having a break from making candles for over a year, I decided now was the time that I wanted to think about re-branding and starting up again. I came across this course and decided to give it a go. Although I did know a fair amount about candle making, it really helped with clarifying things and making more sense for me. I enjoyed the hour call with Jane, she was very professional and inspiring. I look forward to moving forward with my business with the added support of Jane I'm feeling more confident of it being a success and making my little dream business into reality.
Response from The Candle Coach:Thank you for your kind words Sharon.
6 months ago I embarked on an adventure of a lifetime. I came to see Jane at her studio for 1:1 tuition with a folder full of ideas, and a head full of dreams. Jane was professional, informative and inspiring. I left feeling confident and certain that I was doing the right thing; that the time, the effort and the investment in my candle ideas would prosper one day. I was not disappointed. 6 months later I launched my business and within weeks was being approached by shops and unable to keep up with orders. The dream is now a reality thanks to Jane and her expertise. She provides ongoing support and is always on point with her advice. Do not think twice about enlisting Jane's help, it could make all the difference! ❤ Here's to 2022 🥂
Response from The Candle Coach:Thank you Lisa, such lovely words and it's amazing to see the business you have built. 2022 is going to be brilliant for you.
I spent the day with Jane in her studio she is a font of knowledge and I feel that I have taken a lot away from our day together.
I have also booked her to be my mentor for the next 6 months. She has given me the confidence to start my business and not feel out of my depth. She has given great ideas that I will take forward into my new business.
Thanks Jane for a really enjoyable day. Anyone wishing to learn about candle making book on this course it really does teach you everything you need to know.
Response from The Candle Coach:Thank you Steph for your lovely review.
I did the online course a few months ago and found it to be excellent. The course covers everything from thinking of the ideal client to practical candle making etc… I can go through the course in my own time and also revisit the sessions anytime I want which is great. I then had a one hour chat with Jane which was great. I found Jane to be very friendly, easy to talk to and discuss my ideas with. Jane has a wealth of knowledge and was very helpful giving me lots of ideas and advice on how to go forward I hope to be able to get my ideas of the ground in the near future and will definitely be in touch with Jane for further advice I am so glad that I came across Jane’s facebook group by chance where she shares so much information. Thank you so much Jane for everything.
Response from The Candle Coach:Thank you for your lovely review.
I can remember driving over in the morning feeling really excited and a bit nervous if I am being totally honest - hadn't done anything like this before. It was a big day for me, I wanted to soak up the practical side and also get some hacks on doing things better - I'm a novice, to say the least. Well, nothing about the day disappointed, Jane was lovely, the studio gorgeous. We had a good old long chat about stuff whilst I scribbled away trying to absorb as much knowledge as possible. Jane listened to my ideas and helped put me on the right track - thanks Jane you are absolutely right! I'm now on my way, still not ready to launch but I'm taking my time to get things right. The whole journey (PS I really don't like that phrase) has been brilliant fun, I actually have something to drag me away from the TV and hopefully, I'll make a success of it, but if not, I'm going to love making candles for my family and friends (and me) forever. All this because of a chance meeting with a friend of Jane and then a bit of guts to make contact and get on her course. Brilliant and thank you! x
Response from The Candle Coach:Ahh Dawn, such lovely words, thank you.
An absolutely Brilliant one to one day course, The day was excellently structured in a beautiful room, Jane delivered/shared her knowledge and experience of her craft in a professional. caring and kind supportive way. The course was hands on with great information not only about candle making but how to move forward in starting up and running a business. I love also that Jane offers support after the course being able to check out any queries or question that as arisen on moving forward with my business and to know that Jane is there for support when I need it is a great added bonus to the one to one course. A lovely well delivered course with great information and knowledge would highly recommend it.
Response from The Candle Coach:Thank you Jackie for your kind words, it was such a pleasure to spend the day with you and I look forward to watching your business grow.
A day well spent, tailored to what I needed ,very informative.
Jane is very knowledgeable in her craft and shares this knowledge well,good discussion and lots of food for thought. I came away with confidence in my journey as a small business and a clear vision of the future, the practical is very helpful,I had the opportunity to ask all my questions and left with a tool book of useful information.
Response from The Candle Coach:Thank you for your lovely review
The day was really well planned, enjoyable and educational
All aspects of starting up and running your own business were covered as well as practical candle making for beginners
Jane has so much knowledge and is really easy to get on with that everything went smoothly
I would recommend without hesitation
Response from The Candle Coach:Thank you for your kind words Lisa, looking forward to seeing your business grow.
I really enjoyed my time with Jane I left the session feeling really confident and ready to get started. I had learnt things that I didn’t even know about which was really useful and helped me not waste any time. The legal side was really informative and I was given a booklet to take home so I can always refer back to this. The sandwiches and teas throughout the day were excellent great service. Will be definitely keeping in contact with Jane for my future development would highly recommend this course for anyone thinking about doing this. Just go for it!! Thanks again Jane.
Response from The Candle Coach:Thank you Amy for your lovely words, it was a pleasure to spend the day with you and I’m really excited to see your business flourish, you are going to be great!
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Jane it wasn't like being on a course at all she was so friendly and approachable right from the start . She was easy to talk to and I felt I could ask her questions, she was so helpful and and at the end I had a clear idea on what to do next in setting up my own business. She has promised to keep in touch to see how I'm getting on and has said I can contact her for further advice. When I left I had the feeling that she genuinely wants me succeed.
I would recommend this course especially for the branding legal side of things which she explained so even I could understand them ! Thank you Jane for a brilliant day.
Response from The Candle Coach:Thank you Jo for such lovely words, it really was a pleasure to spend the day with you.
Recently went on this course. Jane was excellent in her knowledge and guidance.
I'm a complete novice and Jane made me feel comfortable. She guided me through the making process with a great outcome.
I feel more confident now in the legislation and health and safety guidelines.
Thank you Jane, will stay in touch!
Response from The Candle Coach:Thank you Carole for your lovely review.
I've recently attended a day with Jane, I decided to take the course having looked around for a long time at alternatives as I wanted to learn as much as I could in one course.
The information that Jane supplies is second to non and because it's a one to one it was tailored to my business needs. I now feel so much more confident to start up my own business knowing that Jane will give me continued support.
I highly recommend this course.
Response from The Candle Coach:Thank you for your great review Suzanne, it was my pleasure to help you along on your journey and I’m sure you will be very successful.
