Candle-making in jam jars with Ruth Martin from Cucumberwood Candles at the Henley School of Art, Henley on Thames


About the Course

On this candle-making workshop you will be making 2 x 90g and 6 x mini 28g jam jar candles. You will be hands-on in the whole process of candle making, from melting the wax and adding the essential oils (from a selection of my blends), to preparing the containers, pouring and labelling. I’ll share my knowledge about essential oils and lots of hints and tips.

It’s a fun and relaxing session, you can’t make candles quickly - the wax melts at its own pace, and as the candles set we get the chance to have a well-earned cuppa / glass of prosecco and home-made chocolate brownies!

All materials are provided and there are aprons for everyone, so just bring yourself!

Age 17+ (no exceptions)
