Anne created a relaxed, fun experience with a mix of informative tips and skills and practical candle making. It was well organised and all the materials were laid out ready to use. We made several types of candles, scented, coloured etc and Anne provided pretty wrapping materials to allow us to give the candles as gifts. I thoroughly enjoyed the day, what a treat to have several hours of productive creative activity in such a perfect location. I am already keen to do another course with Anne.

Really enjoyable course making several different types of candle including pillar, container, tealight and wax melts.
