About the Course

Come to the wonderful Maison Bleu Tea Room and Bar, set in Chelmsford. Bring along a group of friends or come along and meet some lovely new ones!!

Over the next 2 and a half hours you will learn the basics of candle making. You will have the opportunity to sample some of my gorgeous winter fragrances and choose one for your very own hand poured candle.

Using the finest pure soy wax flakes, vegan friendly fragrance oils and lead free wicks, you will produce a beautiful scented candle housed in a vintage cut glass jar complete with lid. Each candle produced will burn for around 45hours and will come with its very own presentation box, hand tied with Olivetreehome's signature sage green ribbon. This would make an amazing personal gift for birthdays or Christmas.

The morning workshops include complementary coffee or tea along with some of the amazing homemade cake on offer.

Evening workshops include a glass of Prosecco and nibbles.

Extra refreshments are available if required.

Please allow overnight curing time for your candle. Collecting the next day or I can deliver/post.

Meeting Helen was such a lovely experience, she is passionate about what she does & no question was a problem. The evening was such a unique experience & she’d picked a fab venue to attend this workshop at. I would definitely book again.

I bought my mum this workshop for her birthday and she enjoyed it so much! I loved the workshop too and Helen was very knowledgable. I can't wait to start burning my candle and also using the re fill service. The snacks and prosecco were fab too! Thank you! I highly recommend to anyone thinking of doing this.
