Candle making workshop with Rowhill Candles

About the Course

Subject to Risk Assessment and, wishing to be compliant with the venues requirements, we plan to resume our Workshops in October. Therefore, if you would like to attend a Workshop, please contact us via our website and as soon as possible, we will confirm a date.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
Rowhill Candles

Our workshop teaches you the basic skills of candle-making where you will create container candles including natural and fragranced; a fragranced candle in a teacup, all made from 100% natural soy wax; and a rolled Beeswax candle.

Our Candle-making Workshops are suitable for beginners or people just starting out and wanting to learn more, and to ensure individual attention we keep our groups small and aim for a maximum of 5 people in each workshop.

You will learn about:
- the basic rules of looking after yourself – the health & safety bit!
- the different types of wax used in candle-making
- the equipment needed for candle-making
- wick types and how to burn a candle correctly
- the differences between essential and fragrance oils
- how to measure the correct amount of wax, fragrance and dye
- the step by step process of making a container candle
- how to assemble and hand pour your container candles
- current legislation on candle labelling
- potential suppliers

At the end of the workshop you will leave with your personally handcrafted candles and even the confidence to create your own candles at home with one of our inexpensive kits available at the end of the workshop. So why not treat yourself or a friend (or both!) to a great morning out and learn a new skill?

The venue is Heath End Village Hall in Tadley only 8 miles from Basingstoke.
We start at 10.30am and finish around 1pm and most importantly we provide tea, coffee and biscuits!

So enjoyed this workshop led by Brian. It was everything I wanted it to be... comprehensive, fun and creative. Brian could not have been more willing to answer questions both during and after the session- a clear expert in his craft with a great deal of experience.
Brian was warm and friendly and made everyone feel welcome from the outset. Very pleased with what was covered and what we were able to make and take away. Highly recommend to others. Truly inspired to make candles at home now! Thank you Brian.

Response from Doodles Online:

Thank you for your review. I'm so glad you enjoyed the workshop Claire.... Brian is a fantastic instructor and is genuinely passionate about his craft. He will be delighted to know that he has inspired you and motivated you to begin making candles at home.
