Attended this course this morning with my sister, and very enjoyable it was!
Anne was very friendly and answered all our questions with a smile on her face.
We didn't realise how much there was to learn, melting points, different wicks, right temperatures for adding colour and fragrances and much more!

I went to do this course with my friend. We really enjoyed doing this very informative and friendly course with Ann.
We have been overwhelmed with her generosity both in terms of her willingness to share her knowledge and the amazing amount of creations you take away from the classes. Ann is a great tutor and we've learned so much on that day.

Thank you!
Babita Gurung & Rusam Gurung.

Really enjoyable course making several different types of candle including pillar, container, tealight and wax melts. Anne is a very knowledgeable and patient teacher and I will certainly be signing up to her advanced candlemaking course. I also liked the fact that it was only a small class of 7 participants allowing for individual attention if needed.
