Candle Making Made Easy

Pouring a candle


Learn award-winning candle maker Jo Macfarlane’s foolproof candle-making process so that your candles are a success every time.

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 and now it’s your time to learn.

So come and join me at my kitchen table where I started my candle making business 8 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 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

The videos with this course were very well structured with clearly defined and explained instructions. It was great to watch though before actually starting. The materials and equipment needed were clearly listed and suggestions for items that can be found at home.
I am looking forward to making more of the container type candles and then perhaps moving on to try other types.
