Join us for a fun and relaxed morning’s workshop in candle making held in a cosy village hall in the Hertfordshire countryside. No previous experience is needed – just come along and enjoy learning a new skill.
All our candles are made with soy wax with a range of fragrance oils and dyes to choose from so you can create your own unique candles to take home.
The workshop will involve making a variety of candle styles – and to help when you have a go at home, we’ll send you away with one of our step-by-step guides.
Class sizes are small – a maximum of 7 – to allow for individual attention. Ages: 16+.
Weekend classes are available if you’re busy during the week. Please contact us to discuss private workshops for one-to-one, small or large groups.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

All materials are included and fresh coffee, tea, juices and biscuits will be available throughout the morning. There is plenty of parking.
Candlemaking kits are available at the workshop - either to carry on your new skill or as a lovely gift.

I had a personal lesson with Anne before Christmas and the lesson was excellent. Due to various reasons I haven't been able to make any candles as yet, however I am confident with the guidance notes that Anne provided that I will be able to give this a go and get creative. We made some lovely festive candles and I thoroughly enjoyed this creative lesson. Would highly recommend Anne's class and look forward to attending some future workshops.
Having done the basic candle making workshop with Anne, I felt confident that the advanced candle making workshop would be just as interesting and I wasn't disappointed. Anne patiently showed us how to place wooden wicks and explained their burning tendencies, explained how to choose wicks for multi-wick candles and demonstrated the cooling time of beeswax. I now have several gorgeously scented candles and wax melts! Very happy!
Had a lovely morning with Anne making candles. I learnt lots and have even signed up for the advanced class. Great teacher, nice little venue, never-ending tea and came home with some wonderful smelling candles. What more can a girl want.
My first candle making course, really enjoyed it. Anne was an excellent teacher, everything was simply explained, I found it easy to follow. We were not rushed at all and made several different types of and colours of candles. They turned out very well, my husband was extremely impressed with the final product. I will certainly book in again for another session.
A friendly personalised workshop just right for beginners. It was really enjoyable and we came away with some lovely candles as well as having learnt a lot about candle making and how to go about it at home. Delighted with the candles I made, learnt about dyes, scents as well as different styles of candles. Thanks very much!
My wife and I had an excellent time, Anne is a lovely lady, she is very professional and knowledgeable. Anne answered all our questions. We learnt a good variety of candle styles and were allowed to take them home to enjoy and give some to family and friends. We will highly recommend this course to anyone. Thank you Anne, you are a star.
What a super course, Ann was absolutely lovely and we made some super candles varying in shape, size, colours & scent. Tea/coffee & cakes served. The course is run in a beautiful village church hall with excellent parking, easy to find. Had a very enjoyable relaxing few hours & came away with super candles, well worth the money, I shall look to go back to the advanced course in the future. 5 stars!
Thank you Anne for a lovely relaxing morning making lots of different candles and meeting new people. Learning about all the options and choosing our own scents and dye colours for various shapes of candles was so much fun! I would highly recommend this class.
Really enjoyed the class. Was lucky to share the class with a small group of lovely ladies. Anne was really helpful and answered any questions we had. We were able to make so many candles. More than I expected to be making. Really happy with the class and would attend the advanced class with Anne which she is considering for the future.
Great course to help with trying out a variety of styles of candles.
Anne was so knowledgeable and happily answered all our questions! Would dedinately recommend for beginners wanting to start somewhere!
Fabulously rewarding morning, and a great introduction to the pleasures of candle making. The course was packed with useful information and tips and the opportunity to try different techniques. Can’t wait to have a go at home now!
