About the Course

Christmas Candle-Making in Jam Jars with Ruth Martin from Cucumberwood Candles

On this candle-making workshop you will be making 2 x 90g and 6 x mini 28g Orange & Cinnamon scented jam jar candles. You will be hands-on in the whole process of candle making, from melting the wax and adding the essential oils (you can do all of them in the winter blend of Orange & Cinnamon, but also choose from my other blends if you would like to), to preparing the containers, pouring and labelling. I’ll share my knowledge about essential oils and lots of hints and tips.

It’s a fun and relaxing session, you can’t make candles quickly - the wax melts at its own pace, and as the candles set we get the chance to have a well-earned cuppa / glass of prosecco and home-made chocolate brownies!

All materials are provided and there are aprons for everyone, so just bring yourself!

Age 17+ (no exceptions - for more information on our Young Adult courses, please visit The Henley School of Art website.
