About the Course

Candle making for beginners and intermediates alike from an expert chandeller.

All aspects of this delightful craft are covered in as much detail as our time together will allow. You will leave with suggestions for further studying, and an overview of the science and craft that is chandelling; not forgetting to mention some beautiful products that you have made yourself.

Whilst the focus is on an overview of chandlering I do touch on principles that people who are interested in creating a chandler business need to be aware of.

All products are fully safety tested and the proper information about sensitivities and allergens is included. As a scientist I would prefer to put you off scented candles than misinform you. I'll teach you how to make sense of safety labels that should now be on every scented candle sold. After all knowledge is power!

As a mum myself I am happy to accept children on the class provided that they are suitably supervised at all times. If I have any concerns about their ability I will not allow them to use the equipment and will not offer a refund, so please only book your children on if you are happy that they can do the activities required safely. As a general rule I would suggest high school age and above.

Unfortunately this particular venue is not wheelchair friendly being on the top of 2 flights of stairs. I will happily create another listing offering private sessions for anyone with mobility issues that requests them. If anyone requires handouts in large print or other formats please let me know so that I can arrange this.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

Tea, coffee and water provided, if you're extra lucky maybe even a biscuit or 2!
