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.
