Description:

Come and join us for a fun filled day of safe candle making. Making handmade gifts such as candles is a rewarding and fun skill for all abilities. Save yourself a fortune by learning how to make your own soy wax poured candles either for pleasure or why not sell on at local craft fairs.

Once you have discovered the many benefits of soy candles you will never look back. You will be able to produce high quality products that are non-toxic, biodegradable and environmentally friendly. These soy candles are clean burning candles that produce little to no soot. During the day you will use high quality soy wax that is derived from oil refining (like paraffin) but comes from a naturally grown renewable resource, the soya bean. You will have the opportunity to sample a variety of fragrance oils and colours when making your candles.

Learn all about:

Health & Safety
Equipment required
Understanding wicks and waxes
Colour and fragrance correctly
Packaging and decoration tips and techniques

In the lesson you will make 2 candles as well as wax melts and all of your wonderful creations go home with you

What's included in the price?

All tools and materials are included in the course fee, although I would recommend that you wear either an apron to protect your clothes, or wear old clothes that you are not bothered if you splat a little wax on.
If you are not able to attend any of the advertised dates, please get in touch as alternative dates may be available including week days and weekends.
We are currently restricting our course to a maximum of 6 people, but if you do have a larger party, please get in touch as an alternative date may be available.
Courses start at 10am and finish around 2pm. These times are for guidance only as, we prefer to go at the speed of the participants in a relaxed non-rushed environment.
Afternoon Tea is supplied by Coopers Tea Room who are able to cater for all diets, please let me know at the time of booking of any special dietary requirements or even if you would like a certain type of sandwich included in your tea.
At the end of the course, a handout is given to all pupils explaining everything covered in the day so there is no need to make endless notes, the only requirement for the day is for you to relax and have fun.

Wonderful candle making session with Tracy! She explained everything clearly and in a very detailed way. Recommend the course for those who wants to just make candles during spare time or to start a business.

Thoroughly enjoyable day with Tracy. Very informative. Tracy is very patient and knowledgeable. A great way to spend an enjoyable Sunday. Great materials and handouts. Lovely lunch and plenty of refreshments. A bonus was the company of Tracy's 2 spaniels, Toby and Teal. I would recommend this course to anyone. 10 out of 10

My husband and I attended a candle workshop with Tracy today and it was fabulous. Tracy is an excellent teacher. She not only taught us how to make the candles but told us where to buy the materials from so we can make more at home. Afternoon tea and cups of coffee during the day made an already great day even better. We recommend Tracy highly to anyone wishing to learn how to make candles. 10 out of 10

I had a one to one course with Tracy this morning. Tracy was very informative, generous with her time, very patient and friendly. Constant cups of tea on offer. I made three candles, of various sizes and loads of melts all free to take home as included in the price.
Can't recommend Tracy more highly to anyone who wants to learn to make candles for either pleasure or business.
Easily 10/10
