Too many people attempt to make candles without being aware of the key elements that ensure their candles will look beautiful, smell divine and burn correctly. Now that you’re here you’re one step closer to making exquisite container candles that not only you will love but your friends and family will too. I’ve taught over 1000 people to make successful candles in person and online in 17 countries and now it’s your time to learn. So come and join me at my kitchen table where I started my candle making business 10+ years ago as I share my knowledge with you so you can learn the art of making the perfect container candle from the comfort of your home. Here's what one attendee said – “Thank you for this course. The format is wonderful – it is easy to follow yet gives all the info clearly and unhurriedly which was great for a technophobe like me. Can’t wait to do the advanced course to further my candle making skills. Thanks again.” K Wood - She now is female founder of The Pouring Room Candle Company.

I started candle making as a hobby over 8 years ago after leaving British Airways. The business grew organically from my kitchen table, running workshops for 18 months and Private Label candles for Luxury Hotels across Scotland and London. I now have a studio where I have welcomed over 1000 attendees to learn beginners and advanced candle making. Now with 3 online courses including building your own candle business I am experienced in helping you to create fabulous candles from home
